As the festive season approaches, Galionites have a unique opportunity to enhance their well-being. A special event, titled “Dine & Learn: Help Thru The Holidays,” focuses on mental health and offers comprehensive health services. Set to occur on December 13 from 5 to 7 PM, this event epitomizes a commitment to addressing the holistic health needs of its citizens.

Hosted at the First Lutheran Church located at 127 South Columbus Street, the event is more than just a seminar; it’s a communal gathering that emphasizes physical and mental wellness. Attendees will have access to a range of health services, including cancer screenings, tobacco/smoking cessation programs, nutrition counseling, diabetes education, blood pressure checks, wound care, and invaluable mental health resources.

The highlight of this event is its focus on mental health, especially pertinent during the holiday season. Holidays, while joyful, can often bring stress and emotional challenges. This event aims to provide support and resources to navigate these challenges effectively. The availability of registered nurses and nurse practitioners on-site ensures professional guidance and personalized care for all attendees.

In a gesture of communal care, the event offers a free dinner to all participants. This not only fosters a sense of community but also aligns with the event’s emphasis on nutrition and overall health.

This event is not a one-time offering. It is part of a series that occurs every 2nd Wednesday of the month, demonstrating the community’s ongoing commitment to health and wellness.

For those interested in attending or seeking more information, the event organizers can be reached at 419-468-3107. This initiative reflects the community’s dedication to fostering a healthier, more informed populace, especially during times when support is most needed.
