ST. GEORGE – With a focus on helping residents live the healthiest lives possible, the Intermountain Healthcare LiVe Well Center in St. George is kicking off the next series of weekly educational lectures focused on bones, inner peace, holiday hassles and more. The series begins Oct. 6 and continues through Dec. 10 with a holiday party scheduled for Dec. 15.
These lectures – as well as the Intermountain LiVe Well Centers in general – encourage people to make healthy lifestyle choices such as exercise and nutrition to not only prevent disease but increase energy.
