Join us this fall to learn how food choices can reduce cancer risk. We now know that the root of many cancer diagnoses is lifestyle related, and we can make changes to live a longer, healthier life. In this class series, we’ll translate scientific findings into simple, practical steps you can take in your kitchen and at the grocery store. The benefits reaped from a diet change can not only help your body fight cancer, but also lower cholesterol, improve diabetes, and promote a healthy weight. If you’re ready for a healthy change, this class is for you!

 

Each class will include group discussion, engaging video lectures, quizzes, a cooking demonstration of 3 recipes as well as resources to keep you motivated at home.

 

When: We will meet Thursdays and Tuesdays starting November 18th from 4-6:15 pm. The class will run through Tuesday December 21st.

 

Where: Class will be held in the Seabiscuit Conference Room of Howard Memorial Hospital or online using Zoom.

 

Format: To comply with social distancing guidelines, in-person participants will be limited to 5 people. There will be room for 20 additional participants to take the class online.
