No April Fooling! The Best Kept Secrets in Pinal County

Barbara Barr

On Friday, April 1, at 1 p.m. in the MountainView Ballroom, the Wellness Integrated Network of SaddleBrooke (WIN) presents “The Best-Kept Secrets in Pinal County.” No April Fools! Jan Vidimos, program director of Pinal County Public Health, will be filling us in on the programs and services available to us, which she calls the best-kept secrets in Pinal County! Ms. Vidimos is committed to helping people live healthy lives through prevention and awareness.

Jan Vidimos has worked in prevention since 1996, first in the Globe-Miami area at an area health education center, and for the last 23 years with the Pinal County Public Health Services District. Her prevention work has included domestic violence, tobacco use, chronic disease, teen pregnancy, substance misuse, communicable disease, and educational programs. The drive to promote healthy choices has led to rewarding interactions with preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school students; community members; inmate populations; and social service agencies. Ms. Vidimos currently oversees eight grants and the School Health Liaison (SHL) program. She supervises a staff of 13 talented individuals.

SaddleBrooke’s Wellness Integration Network connects SaddleBrooke residents with knowledgeable resources to learn more about options for wellness. We meet on the first Friday of each month, usually in the ballroom of the MountainView Clubhouse, at 1 p.m. The speakers and programs are free to the community, and reservations are not needed.

In addition to our First Friday program each month at the ballroom, WIN also offers small group classes on a variety of topics. Our upcoming small group classes are usually held in our homes and include:
