Upcoming Webinars

  1. December 8: Coffee: Should it be Your Mug of Choice?
    Coffee has been studied extensively and up until recently was thought to have more risks than benefits to health. Current research indicates possible health benefits including a decreased risk of certain types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disorders, type 2 diabetes and liver disease. Join us to learn how it's really ok to have coffee as your mug of choice!
    Presenter: Sherri Cirignano, MS, RDN, LDN
  2. December 15: Stress Proof Your Eating: Holiday Edition
    Juggling multiple priorities in our busy lives can sometimes result in feelings of being out of control or overwhelmed. This can be especially true at the holiday season! When we feel stressed, our otherwise normal, healthy habits may slip, or be replaced by impulsive, less healthy ones. Signs of 'stress-eating' may include choosing more high calorie 'comfort' foods, excessive snacking, skipping meals, and over-eating food portions. With awareness and planning, you can minimize the impact of stress on your diet. Come learn some strategies to stress-proof your eating in this informative webinar!
    Presenter: Sandra Grenci, MS, LDN, CDCES FCHS Educator
