WIT is conveniently offered at four locations across the metro:
• Mondays – March 28 to May 16 at Saint Luke’s South
• Tuesdays – March 29 to May 17 at Saint Luke’s East–Lee’s Summit
• Thursdays – March 31 to May 19 at English Landing Park in Parkville, Mo., and Loose Park in Kansas City, Mo.
Each session meets from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The evening opens with a 15-minute talk by medical experts who share the latest information on heart and breast health, as well as nutrition, diabetes and other valuable topics. Next is an hour-long walk/run at each woman’s pace.
An optional but valuable part of the program is a heart screening by specialists in women’s heart care from the Muriel I. Kauffman Women’s Heart Center. For no additional charge, participants receive a cholesterol profile, thyroid and glucose check, Vitamin D test and weight and waist circumference measurement.
The cost to participate is $35. Pre-registration is required. To register, call NurseLine at 816-932-6220 or visit http://www.saintlukeshealthsystem.org/
