Fargo VA Health Care System
Intro to Whole Health Oct. 12 and 16
The Fargo VA Medical Center will host Introduction to Whole Health Classes on Oct. 12 and 16.
The Oct. 12 class is 8-10 a.m. in the Whole Health & Wellness Center (2E-25) at the Fargo VA Medical Center. The Oct. 16 class is 4-6 p.m. in the 3rd floor auditorium at the Fargo VA Medical Center.
The classes are open to Veterans transitioning from service who are not enrolled in VA health care, new enrollees to VA health care, and currently enrolled Veterans. Each class is a stand-alone session – participants only need to attend on one of the dates.
Introduction to Whole Health classes are designed to introduce Veterans to the VA Whole Health approach to care. Whole Health recognizes the patient as a whole person and helps support their unique answer to the question, “What would you do if your health were the best it could be?”
Whole Health goes beyond illnesses, injuries, or disabilities. It focuses on the patient’s values, aspirations, health, well-being, and includes self-care and complementary therapies, such as acupuncture, massage, yoga, tai chi, and mindfulness, along with conventional medical care. In Whole Health care, the patient is a more active partner with their health team. The number one goal is for the patient to accomplish the mission they create for themselves.
