We will be discussing three main topics during these sessions:

  • 1) Back to Basics on Nutrition: With each session you will learn how to improve your health and nutrition. You will be given easy-to-make healthy recipes and easy exercises to try at home.
  • 2) Special Dietary Needs: With our changing food culture we need to be aware of the different medical, moral, and personal food needs. We will look at four different diets that require special foods and nutrients that differ from the norm: the DASH diet and those of vegans, vegetarians, and people suffering from celiac disease.
  • 3) Vitamins and Minerals of Concern (why they are important, their connection to disease; where to find them): Learn which vitamins and minerals are essential to optimal health, especially for the senior population.

Your presenters are all Community Health Majors at SUNY Potsdam and have either a Nutrition minor or Fitness minor or both. They are all members of Eta Sigma Gamma, the Community Health Honor Society.
