This week is National Healthy Weight Week! The third week in January is dedicated to understanding the importance of maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle. According to National Foundation For Cancer Research (NFCR), January is a particularly difficult time for Americans to remain heathy and active. About 20% of all cancer diagnoses is related to physical inactivity. With efforts to improve health and reduce risk of cancer, Americans should get moving during one of the most sedentary months of the year, and celebrate Healthy Weight Week from January 15th through the 21st in simple steps. If you want to learn more about healthy weight, please attend NEMS Health Education Workshop.
