WOW! forum look at simple ‘5-2-1-0’ steps to change one’s life

Dr. Monica Dixon presents “Living 5-2-1-0: How 4 Simple Steps Can Change Your Life,” a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.

Seating is limited, so attendees are encouraged to arrive early.

The 5-2-1-0 campaign encourages people to eat five vegetable and fruit servings per day, enjoy two or less hours of recreational screen time, be active one hour a day and drink zero sugar-sweetened beverages.

The four research-based steps are proven as the most powerful antidotes against chronic disease, event organizers say, as Dixon offers a “fun, energetic presentation to learn how to take simple steps towards these big rewards.”

WOW! Working on Wellness is a health education program of Dungeness Valley Health Wellness Clinic — Sequim’s free clinic. The clinic provides basic urgent care and chronic health care services to uninsured community members.

The clinic’s work is supported by more than 70 volunteers including physicians, other professional health care providers and laypersons, as well as private and public donations from the Sequim community and beyond.

The Basic Urgent Care Clinic is open to patients on Monday and Thursday evenings beginning at 5 p.m. Individuals interested in supporting the clinic may call 360-582-0218.
