Health Education - The more you know...

by Erin Torrone
Heath Education Specialist
Swedish Medical Center

Many of us would not choose to go back to school. We're finished with the exams, the studying and the lectures. But does that mean we don't have anything more to learn? Unlikely. In fact, most of us could afford to get schooled&on health! Do you know the latest recommendations for lung cancer screening? Do you know how to cook heart healthy meals? What about the right way to do CPR? Even as a health educator, I find myself at a loss with many of these questions.

Of course, if you've been out of school for a while, it may seem hard to jump back in or even know where to jump back in. When it comes to health you'd probably be surprised to learn, the hospital is more than just a place to go when you get sick. Hospitals are also the place to go to avoid getting sick. Learning about health is one of the best ways to do this and many hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities have health education classes that can exercise your brain (and even your body, too!) Instead of paying a copay to spend 15 minutes with a doctor, why not try a health education class? Many are free or low-cost and can offer opportunities to ask questions and get much needed answers to health questions.

Ask your doctor, your neighbors or your friends to get recommendations on classes and class locations. Visit local clinics or their websites to see what kind of classes they have available. Check out swedish.org/classes, for a list of community classes that Swedish hosts at all five campuses. For instance, coming up April through May, we have interactive healthy cooking classes, pre-diabetes education, joint replacement seminars and free nutrition classes with dieticians. For anyone who is looking to get or renew their BLS, CPR or First Aid certification, Swedish holds classes every month. These are just some of the many classes available every month at Swedish locations and we're always looking for suggestions on topics you want to learn about - especially within the LGBT community. If you have a suggestion, then I want to hear from you! Shoot me an email at healtheducation@swedish.org - with ATTN: LGBT COMMUNITY HEALTH EDUCATION in the subject line.

My point is that learning is a lifelong journey! And health and wellness are issues that we should be studying inside and outside of the classroom and what better place to learn than your neighborhood hospital? As students everywhere start cramming for their exams, why not test yourself on your healthcare knowledge! We would love to see you in some of our classes.

Please visit swedish.org/classes or call 1-800-SWEDISH (800-793-3474) to learn more about Swedish's Community Health Education program and monthly classes.
