Yes2Health program provides wellness education

DELAWARE- In Delaware, those looking to start off the year on a healthier note have a new resource.

The Yes2Health program, under the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, provides education on all things wellness.

Organizers say the program has gone virtual due to the pandemic but that’s allowed them to expand their reach outside the first state.

The free, 12-week program allows participants to make their own schedules and supports those struggling with health-related issues that put them at risk for breast cancer or other chronic illnesses. “We focus on really doing this in baby steps instead of shell-shocking someone into a whole nutritional plan. We sort of guide the way piece by piece so that its more obtainable,” Program Manager Amanda Perdue said. “So even if you are a healthy eater and you’re looking to hone in on more veggies or fruit, this program breaks apart that nutritional information into chunks.”

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition urges those at risk of breast cancer to get screened.  Through the groups outreach team, they provide free mammograms and transportation to appointments.

The first set of classes start up Wednesday, January 5th. If you would like to learn more, email program manager Amanda Perdue at aperdue@debreastcancer.org or click here
