An exercise program designed specifically for people with arthritis will begin Tuesday, Aug. 19 at Green County Health Department. The program is called PACE, which stands for "People with Arthritis Can Exercise."

During the six-week program, participants will go through a series of gentle movements and activities designed to increase mobility and range of motion. The sessions meet twice per week - Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 to 11 a.m.

"A properly designed and executed exercise program helps people with arthritis keep joints flexible, maintain muscle strength and build overall stamina," said Jaclyn Hodges, health educator for the Green County Health Center. "But before you begin any exercise program, you should always check with your doctor."

Pre-registration is necessary to participate in the class and enrollment is limited.

For more information, or to register for the PACE Exercise Program, contact Hodges at the Green County Health Center at (270) 932-4341.
