GAHHS and U of I Extension Office Partner Up to Offer Meals for a Healthy Heart

Planning, shopping and cooking for when you or someone you love has heart disease can be a real challenge. To celebrate American Heart Month in February and help improve your cardiovascular health, University of Illinois Extension and Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services will offer a program called Meals for a Healthy Heart. This workshop series will be taught by Leia Kedem, registered dietitian and Nutrition & Wellness Educator.

Meals for a Healthy Heart is a series of two 2 - 2 ½ hour sessions designed for anyone interested in preventing or managing heart disease. In each session participants receive recipes, watch cooking demonstrations, taste foods to meet their dietary needs, and learn about proper diet and exercise to better care for their health.

Meals for a Healthy Heart aims to improve your overall wellbeing. The program is meant to complement the recommendations of your health care provider and to help you and/or your loved one manage heart disease.

Please join us on February 26 and March 5 from 2-4 p.m. at the Moyer District Library, 618 South Sangamon Avenue, Gibson City.

This program will be completely free to participants, thanks to generous support from Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services. No products will be sold at the classes. Space is limited, so enroll now.

University of Illinois Extension offers educational programs that are aimed at making life better, healthier, safer and more profitable for individuals and communities throughout Illinois. Volunteers who serve on local Extension councils help to determine program priorities at the county level.
