SOMERSET-—Somerset Hospital through Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield will offer the Drop 10 in 10 Program in February. The class begins Feb. 2 and runs every week for 10 weeks. The class will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Community Connection Conference Room at Somerset Hospital.
Drop 10 in 10 is a 10-week weight management program designed to help participants lose 10 pounds (or 10 percent) of their body weight through an engaging program of optimal nutrition, regular exercise and behavior change. The program includes a combination of educational lectures, experiential activities, self-study, self-monitoring and personal goal setting.
There is a fee for Highmark members to participate in Drop 10 in 10 and a nominal fee for non-Highmark members to participate in the program.
