Westfield Board of Health Seeks Volunteer Peer Leaders

Project Healthy Bones (PHB) is a 24-week program for older adults with or at risk for osteoporosis. PHB exercises target
the body’s larger muscle groups to improve strength, balance, and flexibility. The interactive educational portion addresses health topics, such as exercise, osteoporosis diagnosis and treatment, medications, nutrition, falls prevention, safe movement, and lifestyle factors related to osteoporosis. Peer Leaders lead local workshops in teams of two using an easy to follow manual. Peer Leaders are expected to facilitate at least one workshop per year.  Program details can be found in this flyer.
