Project Healthy Bones is an exercise and education program that helps seniors at risk of osteoporosis learn the benefits of exercise, nutrition, safety, drug therapy and lifestyle factors.
The program was developed by the NJ Department of Health and Senior Services and the North Jersey Regional Arthritis Center.
We are able to offer it free-of-charge thanks to support from a Socialization and Recreation grant from the Mercer County Office on Aging, a grant from the Office of Faith Based Initiatives – NJ Department of Human Services, the Lawrence Township Community Foundation, as well as other foundation grants and private donations.
We offer one 24-week session annually at five locations. New sessions begin in September, and continue through to March, with on-going maintenance classes provided to graduates through to July. Classes at St. Mary’s Cathedral and South Village are offered in bilingual format to accommodate Spanish-speaking participants.
Open and print Participant Information Sheet for reference.
The program is free-of-charge, but registration is required.
