Programs

 

* Wellness Workshops

A series of fun, interactive and hands on learning sessions. The workshops introduce participants to making manageable modifications on making healthy lifestyle changes for enjoying a healthier way of life.

Our mission is to educate and coach participants on how they can incorporate healthier lifestyle adjustments into their busy lives.  

The workshop group activities are aimed to help encourage and support each participant with tools to help increase understanding of how to eat healthy, the benefits of being physically active and to gain knowledge about the importance of eating a variety of different food groups.

Participants learn from the instructors, but also develop knowledge and skills from the hands on activities that are done in group activities and from each other's success stories and encouragement.  The Wellness Workshop series are conducted in April and October. All participants in the PHBP are welcome.

 If interested in attending a workshop, please call (718) 591-2000 Ext. 1408 for the workshop schedule.
