CHI St. Joseph’s Health is happy to announce that a $1,500 grant will help veterans participate in exercise programs offered at the hospital. Greg Remus from the local Disabled American Veterans Chapter 38 recently presented the grant to Amy Erickson, CHI St. Joseph’s Health Director of Rehabilitation Services. It will be available to veterans, or immediate family members of veterans, who might otherwise be unable to afford exercise classes like MOVE, Parkinson’s classes, or the Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase III program. We are proud to support the mission of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), which is empowering veterans to lead high quality lives with respect and dignity. If you or anyone you know would benefit from this grant and the exercise and wellness services available, please call CHI St. Joseph’s Health rehabilitation department at 218.616.3000.
