Strengthen your family with Worcester Health’s program Healthy Worcester Families

Snow Hill, MD - Get the whole family involved in adopting a healthier lifestyle with the Worcester County Health Department’s new program Healthy Worcester Families.

This 9-week program uses an evidence-based curriculum to help strengthen the family bond and communication through group learning and activities. The program is designed for youth ages 7-17 and their parents/guardians to attend together. 

Sessions are two hours per week over the 9-week program, and a free family dinner will be provided at the start of every session. Families have the opportunity to receive prizes and other incentives for participation in the program. Topics covered will include communication skills, healthy behaviors, financial literacy, and other skills to strengthen the family connection. A past participant of the Healthy Worcester Families program said that, as a result of participating, their family will continue to “eat healthy, spend quality time together, and communicate better.”

The winter session will begin on Monday, February 5, 2024 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul United Methodist Church (405 Flower St. Berlin, MD. 21811). A Pocomoke class location is being planned and will be available within the year.
