Cayuga Community Health Network, Inc. is hosting an interactive webinar will look at the various numbers associated with health. Join this discussion-based session to learn how to “know your numbers!” on March 3st, 2022 at 12:00 PM.

How does an individual know if they’re in good health? Their primary care doctor might tell them that their blood pressure is “good” but what does good mean? Blood pressure, blood sugar, heart rate, BMI, and waist circumference are all examples of health indicators.

After this session participants will be able to do the following:
-Advocate for themselves and keep track of their numbers.
-Be able to explain why these numbers matter and their associated diseases
-Know what their numbers mean and how to make changes to improve health outcomes.
