The path to wellness in Grant County is paved with information and help on several topics.
Here’s a list of some of the classes and programs available:
• Free classes are at 5:05 p.m. on Wednesdays at the hospital, in front of the upstairs registration area. The sessions, led by physical therapist Sarah Russ, last about 40 minutes, with each series running six weeks. The emphasis is on safe mobility and improving balance. All ability levels are welcome.

• A private tai chi program is also led by licensed massage therapist Kevin Cline, who offers a simple, short form that promotes balance, relaxation and energy flow through gentle movements.
