OBSERVING NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH®
Each year the month of March is reserved to promote nutrition education and spread awareness about making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The National Nutrition Month® theme for 2016 is “Savor the Flavor of Eating Right,” which encourages everyone to take time to enjoy food traditions and appreciate the pleasures, great flavors and social experiences food can add to our lives. MANNA, in partnership with Presenting Sponsor Health Partners Plans, is committed to spreading awareness about nutrition all month. We will show appreciation for our Nutrition Department on Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, observed March 6th, and by hosting Nourish (see below) on March 24th!
Nourish presented by Health Partners Plans will be held on Thursday, March 24th. Nourish provides a closer look at MANNA’s “food is medicine” model coupled with an opportunity for industry leaders to share ideas with their peers. This year’s event will consist of two educational seminars along with the presentation of MANNA’s Nourish Award to Dr. Rickie Brawer of Jefferson. All are welcome to attend one or more of the sessions and the award presentation. Seminar seating is limited; RSVP is required. Please see our Nourish page to register or contact Kate Baron at 215-496-2662 x 137 for additional information.
