Your Health New Hampshire

Southern NH Area Health Education Center

We invite you to join Sandra Osorio, Nitanga Jean de Dieu, and Jodi Harper as they lead Your Health New Hampshire on Mondays at 9am!  Sponsored by Southern NH Area Health Education Center (also known as SNHAHEC), Your Health New Hampshire Is a bi-weekly show that will explore the many services available through SNHAHEC and their partner networks.  We recognize that where you play, work, stay, and pray has a big impact on your ability to be healthy, and this show will look at classes and services available to help you be well and live your most healthy life.

On our show we give our community tools to find the right education, incentives, social support, motivation, and strategies to adopt and maintain healthy behaviors and helping people to manage their chronic disease.
