MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – If your New Year’s resolution included eating better, The Wellness Program at the West Virginia University Health Sciences Center could be your ticket to success.

The Wellness Program and Mountain State Blue Cross Blue Shield have partnered to provide a four-week class – Eat Well for Life – the aim to help you feel better.

Eat Well for Life is a specially designed program to help you discover easy meal planning tools, smart shopping strategies and healthy ways to cook great-tasting foods.

It will be offered on four consecutive Tuesdays, beginning January 25, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the John E. Jones Conference Center, which is located on the ground floor of the Health Sciences building.

For members of Mountain State Blue Cross Blue Shield and Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, the classes are free. The cost of each course for non members is $60, which includes all four classes and materials.

“These programs are unique because they are being provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield – an insurance company that is promoting prevention and not just treatment for good health,” Dave Harshbarger, manager of The Wellness Program at the WVU Health Sciences Center, said.

For more information on the classes, including registration, call 304-293-2520.
