I’m thrilled to announce that the GMR has funded the Effingham Public Library‘s Mobility for All program!
Description: Effingham Public Library will partner with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine to provide “Mobility for All” a monthly chair yoga training that will provide strengthening exercises that anyone can do as well. During these sessions the Library will offer instruction and free resources from the National Library of Medicine such as Exercise & Physical Activity: Your Everyday Guide from the National Institute on Aging, Getting Fit for Life and Go 4 Life Tip Sheets
Goals and Objectives: The goals for “Mobility for All” are two-fold. First, “Mobility for All” will address the prevalence of overweight adults in Effingham County. Second, the project will also combat the continued increase in physical inactivity.
To meet these goals, Effingham Public Library’s “Mobility for All” will host a minimum of 150 participants in training sessions over the 12-month project. Health resources from the National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health will be shared with participants at each session.
