Englewood Community Hospital will celebrate Nutrition Awareness Month on Wednesday, March 23rd from 10:00 am-11:00 am in the Suncoast Auditorium behind the hospital. We will offer a free lecture on "New Dietary Guidelines: What You Need to Know" by Nancy Olson, MS, RD, LD, Clinical Dietitian at Englewood Community Hospital. Following the lecture from 10:30 am-11:00 am we will have a healthy snack demonstration and tasting, in addition to blood pressure screenings.
"U.S. dietary guidelines are updated every five years with government recommendations. They are based on scientific reviews and dietary data analyses by an appointed government committee. The new dietary guidelines emphasize having a healthy pattern of eating with a variety of foods daily" shares Nancy Olson.
This event is open to the community and we welcome you to come learn more about the latest dietary guidelines and ways to incorporate healthy snack options into your daily routine. To register, please call (941) 473-3919 or online at: www.EnglewoodCommunityHospital.com.
