    We are hoping to go at some point, but the session we most want to go to, kids making lunches, is during spring break. In fact, all of Oakland County will be on break that week. If there is anyway they can change the date for that topic, we would appreciate it!

    Hi Jen,

    Look forward to seeing you at one of the Healthy Family Special Events. We have traditionally held our classes on the first Tuesday of each month because of the other classes/groups/seminars/events going on at the Weight Control Center. We won’t be able to change the date of the Likeable Lunches class for this year, but will consider Spring Break when scheduling next year. Appreciate your inquiry. Mary Ligotti-Hitch, R.D., Beaumont Weight Control Center.
