‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’ self-defense program set for May 22

Practice simple, self-defense martial arts moves with your daughter and American Martial Arts instructor, Claude Hancock, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Thursday, May 22, at CentraCare Health Plaza.

While at this program titled “Hit Me with Your Best Shot,” Elizabeth Riesgraf, MD, CentraCare Clinic, will share how recommended immunizations function and how they protect you and your daughter at every age.

“Immunizations boost your body’s own self-defense mechanisms to protect you against common diseases and illnesses,” said Sharon Dunham, RN, education specialist, Women & Children’s Center, St. Cloud Hospital. “You have the power to protect yourselves. Give it your best shot by learning about self-defense, from both a vaccination and safety standpoint.”

Light snacks and a door prize are included. Pre-registration required at centracare.com. Although no admission is free, register early; seating is limited. For questions, call St. Cloud Hospital Women & Children’s Center at (320) 656-7021.
