Amy’s inviting each of you to kick off summer by knowing your numbers after visiting her office. At the visit, Amy will take your weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), % Body Fat, and Blood Pressure reading. If you are interested in knowing your numbers at the start of summer and then comparing your numbers at the end of summer, stop into the Health Department at 1025 Memorial Drive in Oakland and ask for Amy Ritchie. You must weigh with no shoes or socks to obtain your BMI and %Body Fat.
I’m sharing some dates and times that Amy is available, and anyone interested can give her a call for an appointment time.
Tuesday, June 7th (2:00 pm – 4:00 pm)
Wednesday, June 8th (11:00 am – 1:00 pm)
Friday, June 10th (8:00 am -10:00 am)
If these times do not work for you, please email Amy, and she will try to accommodate you. Amy hopes to offer a midsummer assessment on July 13th and an end-of-summer assessment on September 14th.
