As of May 4, 2020, the novel Coronavirus has been diagnosed in over 1.1 million Americans. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised that people with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, coronary heart disease, chronic lung disease, hypertension and obesity are among those at greater risk to have severe outcomes from this disease.

Learn the latest research about how foods can fight diseases linked to poor COVID-19 outcomes, including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity, and gather tips and recipes for applying the information to what you put on your plate. This series will be held online to empower individuals on ways to improve or prevent chronic disease(s) linked to poor Covid-19 outcomes. This 5 class online series includes cooking demonstrations of 3 recipes per class that have been created by chefs to taste great and that include commonly available ingredients including fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans. Each class also includes information about the health-promoting benefits of plant-based diets, which have been scientifically-proven to prevent and reverse many of the underlying health conditions that are so concerning at this time.
