Beauty Balance Classes Now Offered

Beauty Balance classes are now being offered at the Peitz Cancer Support House and Schliemann Center for Womenand#39;s Health Education thanks to a pair of BRMC summer interns.

Emma Gist has been interning at the four Community Health Education and Support Houses this summer and developed the Beauty Balance class to focus on the importance of stability and strength training for senior women. Emma is an Exercise Science major graduating this month from Missouri State University and will continue her education by pursuing a Masterandrsquo;s degree in Health Promotion and Wellness Management.

Makenna Seats has also been interning at BRMC at the Community Houses and in Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy, Athletic Training, Cardiac Rehabilitation and Employee Wellness. Makenna is an Arkansas State University-Jonesboro student majoring in kinesiology and has taken over the Beauty Balance Classes for Emma until she returns to school.

Beauty Balance classes are offered free of charge on Monday afternoons at 1:00 p.m. at the Peitz Cancer Support House and Friday mornings at 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m at the Schliemann Center for Womenand#39;s Health Education.

The classes will continue with other facilitators after both interns return to school this fall.
