Tandrusti students Marcia Blake and John Meah are featured in a new health campaigned recently launched in Dudley Borough.
The ‘LET’S GET’ initiative has been designed to help residents make healthier choices with their food while highlighting the benefits of being physically active. The campaign centres on an interactive and easy to use website located at www.lets-get.com
I recently had the chance to talk with the Hearing Therapist at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. I have been losing my hearing for over 25 years and cannot now remember what advice I was given right at the beginning, so it was very useful to get some up-to-date information.
WEA’s health education project (CHEST Project) has been awarded a grant from Stoke-on-Trent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to deliver short health education and physical activity courses to patients about to be discharged from hospital and regular users of health services to support them with independent and healthy living within their own communities.
"Although I have never previously attended a WEA course, I was always going to enrol for this one, having had a deep interest in the subject since my schooldays.
"My name is Zoe Birnie. Whilst attending the WEA courses over the past year, the one that has most influenced me and helped me achieve my goal is the English course. When I first joined the course I had little confidence and no aspiration. I have learned many new skills and met a lot of wonderful people, with the help of the tutor I have gained the courage to apply for college and reach my potential. The skills that i have learned are: doing a plan beforehand, spelling techniques, punctuation and vocabulary.
