Thriving Through Winter

The Winter STREAK Wellness Program is a FREE 12-week community program designed to promote wellness by encouraging participants to increase physical activity, eat healthy and reduce stress. It is a fun and effective way to increase your health and well-being during these cold winter months.

What is the goal?

Complete a STREAK in any form or fashion to string together daily, consistent, healthy habits over time. WellSpan Health and its community partners have created a series of workshops, bingo cards and a resource library to support you on this journey. Engage at any level and use the tools available to you so you can STREAK through the winter months.

Preventative Screenings

Often, the earlier a disease is diagnosed, the more likely it is that it can be cured or successfully managed. When you treat a disease early, you may be able to prevent or delay problems from the disease. Treating the disease early may also make the disease easier to live with. "STREAK" right down to the links below to learn more.
