CRYSTAL LAKE – The McHenry County Department of Health offers a no-cost seven-week interactive educational program designed for women older than 50 to foster healthy choices for a better quality of life.

“Life Smart for Women 2” classes will be led by the health department's Lila Keller, a registered nurse, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Wednesdays, March 27 through May 8, at the Crystal Lake Senior Center, 110 W. Woodstock St.

Advance registration is required by calling the Senior Center at 815-356-7457.

The “Life Smart for Women 2” program will engage participants with skill-building tools, goal setting and self-help tips to improve their health. Discussion topics will include how a woman's life has shaped her health, what to expect while aging, special health concerns for mature women, nutritional needs, staying mentally sharp, legal and financial issues specific to women, and staying safe in one's community.
