LICHFIELD – HSHS St. Francis Hospital is offering a Don’t Diet, Eat Mindfully class beginning March 9 through Bridget Rolens, MA, BSOT, mind-body health services educator at the hospital.
“Despite our best intentions, we often end up eating in ways that harm our health both physical and mental. Developing the skill of mindfulness will help,” Rolens said regarding the upcoming class which runs March 9 through April 13. Class time will be 5:30 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. in the hospital’s auditorium.

She has completed the Core Coach Training program through Wellcoaches7 School of Coaching.
