At McKenzie we believe that healthy changes occur as a result of choices we make over a period of time. These may include making healthy food choices, finding new ways to incorporate physical activity, learning how to recognize and get help with depression, choosing the right supplements, and many other topics that work together for your health. The Healthy Living…Together programming includes monthly events designed to provide you with information to help you make healthy choices.
