Hosted by Gavin Pritchard Tuesday, Dec. 16 with a complementary lunch at noon; program begins at 12:30 p.m.
The holiday season is a time to celebrate with family and friends. Unfortunately, for many it also becomes a time for overeating and weight gain. According to the National Institutes of Health, holiday eating can result in an extra pound or two every year. Over a lifetime, holiday weight gain can really add up.
