Nutrition Workshop

On July 16, 2010, Fund’s Wellness/MAP Department hosted a nutrition workshop for students participating in the 1199SEIU’s WorkForce 2000 Program. The workshop addressed many important and often overlooked health issues that are crucial for this Generation ‘Super Size Me’ to learn more about their bodies to better manage their health.

Students were surprised to hear that to maintain a healthy weight was as easy as making a few simple lifestyle changes and that it is never too early to prevent diseases such as obesity, cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Speakers, information packets, and government-issued guidelines provided information on eating healthier portions and foods, what to eliminate or decrease in their daily intake, and the importance of physical exercise.
