Making Long-Lasting Changes to the Way OUR Community Eats

Now that 2017 is here, it is time to return to a nutritious routine. It is a time to adopt healthier habits and shed the unnecessary weight you may have accumulated throughout the holiday season. Let Care Resource help you!

According to Gloria Cabral, Registered Dietitian with Care Resource, “Childhood Obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. In fact, Florida now has the 35th highest adult obesity rate in the nation, according to The State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America released September 2016. In response, in 2017, Care Resource is spearheading a Quarterly Monday Wellness Workshop Series where Care Resource and the South Florida community can tackle both the causes and effects of obesity and make lasting, meaningful change to the way our community eats. Topics will include: eating well and feeling whole, supermarket smarts, managing stress through nutrition, fitness and food for the real world, nutrition strategies that strengthen the immune system and more. To find out more about the workshop series, call 305.203.5230 or email me at gcabral@careresource.org.”
