HealthyTown-Everywhere Launches Local Community Health and Wellness-based Project

ROYAL OAK— HealthyTown-Everywhere, a Royal Oak-based project to promote healthy behaviors and lifestyles within communities, is planning an enhanced initiative in Royal Oak in September after its inaugural event this summer.

The program involves “hands-on” experience and education for adults and children through discussions and demonstrations of good nutrition with local physicians and dietitians at grocery stores throughout metro Detroit.

“Our goal is to continue to get important and beneficial information to residents and have them apply what they learn at the grocery store,” says physician Paul Ehrmann, D.O., a health and wellness advocate and medical director of the Family Health Care Center of Royal Oak for more than 30 years. “We hope this kind of program will grow to other communities.”

Programs at Holiday Market and other metro Detroit grocery stores to be announced throughout the year. Among the features of the upcoming program include: 

  • Targeted nutrition education to set a foundation for healthy eating.
  • Grocery store tours with discussions and cooking demonstrations at the market.
  • Interactive discussion series at Holiday Market.
  • Take home and Web-based materials to provide further nutritional guidance for children and their family.
  • Teaching elementary school students about nutrition in cooperation with Royal Oak Public Schools in preparation for the Holiday Market visit.
  • A new pediatric component measuring blood pressure and healthy weight measurements
  • A new fitness component in cooperation with metro Detroit-based YMCAs.

“As physicians, we are well aware of the obesity problem facing both school aged children and their parents,” says Lawrence Abramson, D.O., Oakland County Osteopathic Association executive director. “We agree that a program that promotes the importance of good nutrition, healthy cardiovascular living, and lifestyle behavior modification is a very important benefit where we live, work and play.”

Ehrmann has developed the HealthyTown program free of charge, in participation with Holiday Market of Royal Oak, the Coordinated Dietetics Program at Wayne State University, and the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University.


NOTE: Dr. Ehrmann is available for interviews. Call 248-563-0386.

HealthyTown-Everywhere is a collaborative project supported by the Family Health Care Center, the Wayne State Coordinated Dietetics Program at Wayne State University, the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Holiday Market, the Oakland County Health Department, the Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce, and the Royal Oak School District.

Dr. Ehrmann, former chief medical consultant to the Public Health Committee of the Michigan House of Representatives, was included in an AOA news advisory of osteopathic physicians who can provide tips on avoiding holiday weight gain.

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
