Exclusively for Upper Peninsula Residents: My Way To Wellness Online - July through August 2023
Are you looking for a way to learn more about healthy eating and physical activity - on your own time? Take this self-paced online course any time that works for you.
The Upper Peninsula My Way to Wellness course reviews healthy food choices, physical activity, goal setting, food safety, reading a food label, and more! There are 10 video lessons along with interactive activities and knowledge checkpoints to aid in learning. Each lesson is about 30 minutes in length. An MSU Community Nutrition Instructor will be available to answer questions, facilitate discussions and provide support.
Classes are offered in two-month blocks. Once you begin a class, you have until the end of your two-month class session to finish it. (For example, participants in the July-August session must register by at least August 21, and complete their session by September 1.) New sessions begin every other month. Sign up for a two-month session below.

MSU Extension nutrition and physical activity programs are funded by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. Both programs aim to reach limited resource audiences, who are eligible for one or more of the following programs: Free/reduced school lunch; Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservation (FDPIR), Head Start, SNAP Bridge Card/EBT, WIC, and other assistance programs. We aim to have at least half of every class qualify by income.
