Welcome to HealthWise, a space devoted to all things health and wellness!

Here you’ll find information about our free education classes and workshops, upcoming events, and MMC news and information designed to help you lead a healthier life. We’ll introduce you to some of the staff you might interact with and what you can expect if you are ever a patient and share experiences other patients have had here at MMC. Currently, HealthWise is also a quarterly magazine that is distributed via direct mail throughout our primary service area.
