Health and lifestyles: a cycle of meetings with experts at the Vimercate Community House

The meetings will start next April 19 at 5:30 p.m. and will continue every Tuesday, at the same time, until June 7: they will take place at the Vimercate Community House, via Brambilla 11, in the building opposite the hospital .

The cycle of appointments includes the alternation of experts in nutrition and physical activity, diabetologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, internists, nurses, all with a specific objective: to learn how to prevent diseases with precautions.
simple, accessible to all.

“The promotion of health in healthcare settings, for example in an ASST – he explains Biagio Tinghinohead of the community house and curator of meetings – this is not an option”.

The great challenges of chronicity, waiting and above all quality of life are overcome by quitting smoking, eating properly, practicing healthy physical activity.

Epidemiological data

The epidemiological data speak for themselves: “stopping smoking early – adds Tinghino – (better not to start!), restores 10 years of life, compared to those who continue in addiction. Those who eat 4-5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day see their risk of cancer reduced, even by 25% and those who walk almost every day, practicing aerobic activity, have a lower risk of heart attack and stroke, without saying that they take out insurance against the metabolic syndrome and diabetes”.

Guido Grignaffini

“The opening of the Community House of Vimercate – emphasizes Guido Grignaffini, director of social health of ASST Brianza – is a unique opportunity to promote health. The idea is to offer citizens not only care, advice, integrated support in the management of chronic diseases and complex cases, but also disease prevention tools. The structure is, and wants more and more to be, a common place where health is built and learned”.
