Overview:
The Healthy Rotarian Program is an ongoing program (January through June 2019) to promote healthy diet and lifestyle education for Redondo Beach Rotarians. The program will include regular mini-programs (3-5 minutes) at the weekly luncheon on topics such as diet, exercise, healthy cooking, and other health related topics. Additionally, those that want to go deeper may join in a private challenge group to work together on their personal diet and exercise goals.  
 
Goal:
The goal of the program is to educate RBRC Rotarians on healthy lifestyle choices. Some may want to lose weight, some may want to start a regular exercise program and those that don’t want to do either will at the very least learn more about a healthy way of living.  Rotarians are leaders and can make a significant impact on their friends and family by embracing healthy lifestyle choices
 
Implementation:
  • Kickoff program in January (10 minutes)
  • Voluntary Heathy Rotarian challenge group
  • Bi-weekly short program by RBRC volunteers to HR Program
  • Healthy Rotarian table for information and handouts
  • Two (or more depending on speaker availability) full programs
  • Bi-weekly short testimonials by challenge group participants
