Stickney Public Health District Creates Walking Club for Residents


The Stickney Public Health District (SPHD) has formed the SPHD Walking Club to help encourage local residents to stay active and get out and meet their neighbors. Each of the District’s clinic sites, and the Louis S. Viverito Senior Center, will have specific times and days set aside from which the group can embark .


The group is open to walkers of all levels, and ages, and encourages those with strollers to participate as well. Each site location will have clean and accessible bathrooms. The Walking Club will begin in April and, weather permitting, continue through October.

Location start dates, times and addresses are listed below.
If you have questions, please call 708-424-9200 and ask for Shelly.

APRIL IS NATIONAL STRESS AWARENESS MONTH

Stress is an everyday reality.   A small amount is actually good for us, but if not kept in check, stress can feel quite overwhelming. The key is to manage stress in healthy ways.  Learn to meditate, exercise, plan activities with friends.
