    Forum on arthritis planned today at Long Center

    CLEARWATER -- Dr. Andrew Klipper, a rheumatologist and Sally Marlowe, nurse practitioner, will give an arthritis update at 1:45 p.m. today in the Long Center, 1501 N Belcher Road. Sponsors are the Florida Chapter, Gulfcoast Region of the Arthritis Foundation and the Long Center. Free admission, but seating is limited. Call 462-6028 for reservations.

    Volunteers needed for mentoring programs

    CLEARWATER -- Gulf Coast Community Care needs volunteers for two of its programs. Linking Lifetimes matches adults 30 and older with a child from a single-parent, low-income home. The Adopt-A-Grandchild program needs adults 55 and older to volunteer at least two to four hours a week for an infant or up to 16 years old. No experience necessary for either program. Training is provided by Gulf Coast Community Care, 14041 ICOT Blvd., Clearwater. To sign up or for information, call 538-7460, ext. 3019 or ext. 3192.

    Pilates sessions available at wellness centers

    CLEARWATER -- The Wellness Centers of Morton Plant Mease Health Care offer the Pilates' method of body conditioning. Classes are offered Mondays and Fridays at the Clearwater Wellness Center, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Palm Harbor Wellness Center.

    Joseph Pilates developed the program, a strengthening and stretching class based on a few repeated control and resistance movements, about 70 years ago. Using six basic principles, including concentration, control, centering, flowing movement, precision and breathing, the classes have been used by numerous ballet companies and theater groups. They also are good for seniors, because beginner-level classes are gentle, non-cardiovascular exercises that concentrate on mind-body awareness. Free to Wellness Center members; $5 per class for non-members. Call (888) 676-8484.
