(EFFINGHAM, IL) – As the community’s health care leader, HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital knows that education plays a major role in building and sustaining a healthy community. As such, St. Anthony’s is partnering with the Beecher City Library this summer to encourage kids to Go! Healthy by providing a wellness program at the library. The program will be held Monday, June 26 at 10 a.m. This free program covering the topic of Sun and Poison Safety will be 30 minutes in length and is recommended for children ages 4-10. For more information visit St. Anthony’s website at stanthonyshospital.org under Events & Classes.
                                       
Another way St. Anthony’s is offering education about healthy life choices is through their web site, stanthonyshospital.org, which includes a Go! Healthy web page (found under the Community Connection menu). The educational information on this web page may be used as a toolkit by families to improve their nutrition, physical activity and safety.
