Weight loss group to host speaker

The Amazing Journeys Together support group in Alexandria will hear from a marriage and family therapist who specializes in nutrition.

That’s in keeping with the group’s mission to help those seeking to lose weight through surgery or lifestyle changes, and encourage families to support those individuals.

Speaker Alison Rusk, a marriage and family therapist at Lakeland Mental Health Clinic, recently completed a master’s program in complementary and alternative medicine with a focus on nutrition from the American College of Healthcare Sciences.   

She will speak from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22, at the Douglas County Hospital. No registration is necessary.

Rusk has worked with clients who feel a lack of control over their health, while also dealing with personal struggles with autoimmune conditions.

Amazing Journeys Together meets every second and fourth Thursday of each month in the hospital lobby meeting room, next to the elevators in the main lobby entrance.
