balance workshopMcLaren Northern Michigan is offering a free workshop called A Matter of Balance, a program that manages concerns about falls and improves balance.

The 4-week workshop starts August 1, and meets every Tuesday and Thursday in the month of August from 1-3 p.m. at the John and Marnie Demmer Wellness Pavilion and Dialysis Center, located at 820 Arlington Avenue in Petoskey.

Community members who are concerned about falls and are interested in improving balance, flexibility, and strength are invited to attend the workshop. Participants will learn to view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home, and exercise to increase strength and balance.

Space is limited and registration is required. Call (800) 248-6777 or visit northernhealth.org/classes to register.
