Two free programs designed to advise people in Adams County's Community Corrections (CC) system about how to eat healthily and manage their money better will start this month, led by a new staffer in the local Purdue University Extension Service office.
The project was revealed at Monday's meeting of the commissioners by county CC Director Ian Gilbert and Nancy Manuel, who joined the county's Purdue extension staff in September.
The two free programs will be offered on November 14-15 and again on November 21-22 from 4:15 to 6 p.m. in the CC site on the second floor of the Star Insurance building, First and Monroe Sts. Forty minutes of instruction will be followed by a break, said Manuel.
Manuel will teach the monetary program, entitled "Coaching for Financial Success."
Deb Mishler will teach the healthful eating program, talking, in part, about "portion distortion."
Gilbert said it is his idea to help people in the CC system so they will not return to the program again.
