The Wellness Group at Southland is a unique group that helps patients learn to live a healthy lifestyle. In The Wellness Group, participants engage in hands-on activities, connect with others, and can meet with their provider to better care for their health.
Our current group focuses on healthy eating and includes education, discussion, and activities on topics such as quality health foods, eating habits and routines, portion sizes, nutrition labels, and social eating. The groups are facilitated by Southland’s occupational therapist, medical providers, and health scholars.
