The GRACE Community Clinic offers a variety of classes to ensure that our wonderful clients have the resources and skills to live healthy lives. Two new classes are focusing on a health-conscious lifestyle and self-care.
Night of Health is a new class here at GRACE that encompasses the many ways of staying healthy. From smaller portions of food to specific exercise routines, our clients are educated on how healthy choices can transform their lives.
Taught by Diabetic Educator, Antonio Miranda Ph.D., RD, LD, the goal of the class is to have a personal approach to the clients.
“I want this class to impact each client in the best way possible,” said Antonio. “I want them to come out of this feeling great and motivated so that they can inspire someone else.”
Night of Health will be held on the second Monday of each month starting October 10th.
Cooking Matters is a class through the Tarrant Area Food Bank which aims at providing a long-term solution to hunger and poor nutrition by demonstrating strategies to get the best nutrition possible on a limited budget.
This fantastic program went on a brief hiatus during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 but made its grand return early this past summer.
The course’s topics include such activities as, tips on grocery store visits, food budgeting, food prep, cooking and food safety, and much more. The participants will end the six weeks course with a celebratory final class and graduation ceremony.
Finally, in coordination with longtime GRACE volunteer Russ Lugo, GRACE is offering an ESL class for clients and community members.
“I’m thrilled to be able to teach this class,” said Russ.” There are so many people in the community who need it and now it’s here.”
The six-week ESL course started this week and will meet every Thursday going forward.
The GRACE Community Clinic is always looking for new classes and volunteers to assist them in providing the best service possible to our beloved community.
