SAW Region Applies for Augusta Health Funding

augusta-health-headerAugusta Health announced the opportunity for organizations to apply for single-year grants to support projects that fall in line with Augusta Health’s focus areas based on the 2012 Community Health Needs Assessment.

Center Directors Lynn Harris and Karen Hurt and Regional Director Janice Gentry decided to focus on the area of obesity. The program “I Think I Ate my Willpower… a program exploring the REAL issues around weight loss and fitness for older adults” is set around a series of seminars about topics such as Motivation, Addiction, Chemistry, and Faith, and will also introduce participants to different low cost fitness options available in our community. The application reflects a request for funding in the amount of $6,150.

The funding decisions are expected to be made by October 31. If funded, this program would begin in January 2014.
