Marva Burrell, 70, from the RHDD alternatives adult day program, was a participant in the pilot session of Healthy Outcomes Program at the Muskingum Recreation Center. Marva has various health conditions including, Sarcoidosis, which requires her to use and oxygen tank at all times. In the past 10 weeks Marva has gone from constant monitoring and Oxygen in the pool to now rarely using the oxygen in the pool. Marva comes into the facility for her class each day with a huge smile on her face. She has made great strides in weight management and nutrition portions of the class as well. She now comes to the facility outside of class time to use the pool and to walk on the fitness trail. We are so proud of what Marva has accomplished in the program.
