Achieving a healthier lifestyle is a common goal that is often difficult to begin without support. CREATION Health classes are based upon eight principles for healthy living- choice, rest, environment, activity, trust, interpersonal relationships, outlook and nutrition. These courses are designed to teach the community how to become mentally fit, physically robust and spiritually vital. Each uniquely designed course combines elements of the eight principles to teach participants a healthier way of life.
“CREATION Health classes are focused on health promotion and disease prevention,” says Candace Huber, Director of Mission Development, Florida Hospital Waterman. “Anyone can receive real health benefits from implementing the lessons taught in each class, whatever their health status.”
