AHS is offering a free workshop called Craving Change

Free sessions to help improve eating habits

Alberta Health Services is offering free sessions to Ponoka residents to help improve eating habits.


Ponoka residents looking to improve their eating habits are invited to a series of free Alberta Health Services (AHS) information sessions.

Craving Change is a set of three weekly workshops that will be offered in Ponoka beginning next month. The workshops are designed to support participants who would like to feel more in control of their eating habits.

The sessions are led by AHS health professionals who share their expertise and guide interactive group discussions to help participants understand problematic eating triggers and develop a healthier lifestyle, built on improved daily decisions.

Craving Change will be held on June 6, 20 and 27 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre.

Participants will learn self-awareness tools and engage in activities designed to help them identify and manage the challenges associated with their nutrition decisions. They will also receive guidance to cope with the emotional factors that impact eating behaviours.

Registration is required as date and time are subject to change.

For more information and to register to attend, please call the Alberta Healthy Living Program Central Zone at 1-877-314-6997.

Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.
