2024 Winter/Spring HealthyChoices Released

by | Dec 7, 2023 | In the News

ST. JOHNSBURY, VT (December 7, 2023) – Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH) has released the January – March 2024 edition of its HealthyChoices newsletter. This free tri-annual publication features a listing of affordable and local public wellness programs and resources to help individuals improve health and stay well in body, mind and spirit.

“I know a lot of people like to make New Year’s resolutions that revolve around health, but taking a new class or trying a new, healthier habit doesn’t have to be a big commitment ” NVRH Community Health Resource Center Coordinator Mary Maurer said. “You can start small with the intention of building up endurance, of improving flexibility. This newsletter helps you work towards small, sustainable changes that will last.”  

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only half of adults get the physical activity needed to reduce and prevent chronic diseases. The CDC recommends 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity and at least two days a week of muscle strengthening each week. Physical activity reduces one’s risk of high blood pressure and stroke. Other benefits include reduced risk of falling, improved cognitive function, reduced risk for depression and improved sleep.

HealthyChoices includes NVRH sponsored programs, fitness centers, kids’ activities, community partner programs, area food resources, outdoor recreation venues, support groups and more.

The publication is directly mailed to community members. It is also available online at For more information about HealthyChoices or to be considered for inclusion in the next edition scheduled for January 2024, please contact NVRH Community Health Resource Center Coordinator Mary Maurer at 802-748-7501.
