Joe Piscatella, the health and lifestyle expert often seen on television, is hosting a low-cost, good-health program in Lynnwood.

“6 Weeks to a Healthier You” is sponsored locally by Verdant Health Commission.

Piscatella is the host of three PBS specials and is a regular guest on “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” and on CNN and Fox News. He lives in Gig Harbor.

After one previous program in Washington, triglyceride rates among participants fell by 23 percent, Piscatella’s website claims.

The $49 registration fee covers a personal biometric analysis, including cholesterol screening, and admission to six 90-minute sessions.

Weekly topics include making health an important part of daily life, diet, exercise, stress, cooking and family.

Classes begin at 6:30 p.m. April 17 at the Lynnwood Convention Center and continue through May 22. Childcare is included.

Pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is April 2, and participants need to schedule a 15-minute appointment for biometrics screening at Swedish/Edmonds before the program begins.
