Each Tuesday in October from 10 to 11:30 a.m., a workshop series called “Healthy, Happy, Hungry You!” will be held at the Tamarack Assisted Living Center’s Activity Room, 1224 E. Tamarack Road. The workshops are free, but registration is required because workshop space is limited. Register by calling 580-477-2890 at the Altus Public Library.

The Southern Prairie Library System and the Great Plains Literacy Council are sponsoring the workshops, along with Tamarack Assisted Living Center as a community partner. Financial assistance for this special health literacy project is made possible with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries.

Do you want to empower yourself to make healthy decisions? How can an adult engage in self-care and chronic disease management? How can nutrition affect the mind, body, and spirit? If these are some questions that you need answered, you will want to attend all four free workshops.

Meegan Mackay will be the facilitator for each workshop. She has designed each session to consist of a 15-minute introduction and interaction; a 30-minute presentation with audio and visual content; a 30-minute tactile, audio, and visual exercise; and a 15-minutes summary and review.
