PinnacleHealth | 06.07.13
HARRISBURG, Pa. (June 7, 2013) -- PinnacleHealth launched "Make a Date Every 8" in May. The social media program encourages women to focus on their health on the 8th day of each month.
Via text messaging, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook, healthcare experts from PinnacleHealth provide tips on various topics ranging from breast health and gynecological issues to managing stress and choosing the right healthcare professional. The format is intended to be informative and fun in order to engage women in making time for themselves and their own health.
“We want women to look and feel their best all summer long. With so many summer picnics and celebrations, it can be difficult to manage extra weight,” says Jessica Hoffman, RD, LDN, PinnacleHealth Weight Loss Center. “Eating to manage a healthy weight is all about balance, and I will be sharing tips to find balance in this month’s blog.”
Women can visit pinnaclehealth.org/8 and sign up for free text messages with health information and reminders. Women can also text the word "DATE" to 69866 to start receiving valuable health tips.
