'Tis the season to be jolly! The holiday season is spent with family and friends and our days are filled with festivities and food—lots of food. Temptations and holiday treats are at every turn and parties and travel can disrupt daily routines and good intentions. This is the season when eating healthy, staying active, and taking medication on schedule is harder to do. Come learn how to stay on track and bring in the New Year with healthy habits and guilt free.
