~“Go Fish for Your Heart” with Elizabeth Hall 

corporate/retail registered dietitian for K-VA-T Food Stores  

 

In July 2017, fish is the focus of an upcoming Women’s Health Series seminar.  Several studies have shown that eating fish reduces risk of heart disease.  Fish is an excellent source of protein and many species are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids.  Eating at least 250 mg. of these omega 3s per day is enough to provide health benefits.  Unfortunately, Americans eat less than half of this amount.  Often the quandary is which fish should I eat?  Or does it matter how I cook it?

Join us on Tuesday, July 25, 2017, for “Go Fish for Your Heart” with guest speaker, Elizabeth Hall, R.D.N., L.D.N. (pictured above), corporate/retail registered dietitian for K-VA-T Food Stores.  Location is the Meeting Room 6, D.P. Culp University Center.  Start time is noon.  [PLEASE NOTE:  Location change.]

Hall’s seminar provides information on healthy food-related behaviors to reduce your risk of heart disease.  In this session, you will learn nutrition tips and resources to help you choose and prepare foods that support and strengthen your body’s hardest working muscle – your heart! 

Upon graduating from Harding University with a bachelor’s degree in dietetics and minor in psychology, Hall completed her dietetic internship at Vanderbilt University.  She works with K-VA-T’s Healthy Initiatives team to develop and implement health and nutrition programs for store associates and communities. 

Reservations are required.  To reserve a space for Hall’s Women’s Health Series seminar, contact the Women’s Resource Center at 423-439-5772.  

This seminar is free and open to the public.
