HAP Balanced Living

Since 2013, HAP Balanced Living has been providing health and wellness information right to the homes of HAP members as a print magazine.  Now expanding digitally, HAP’s Balanced Living blog will continue its commitment to helping you live a balanced life.  We’ll feature stories about moving more, eating right, managing your health, understanding your plan and how to get involved in the community.

If there are topics that you’d like to see written about, whether in the print or digital version, please let us know by emailing balancedliving@hap.org.
