“Our partnership includes a program to provide nutrition counseling for interested participants supervised by myself as a Nutrition Professor and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and provided by graduate dietetic interns. CHS awarded us a grant, so that each participant will receive a fitness tracker that will monitor their physical activity, sleep, and blood pressure. Our aim is for each participant to make positive dietary changes that will improve their overall health.” said WCU Associate Professor of Nutrition Alessandra Sarcona, EdD, RDN.

To attend one of the nutrition counseling sessions please reach out to LCH Community Engagement and Education Manager, Norma Diego at [email protected].
