Here are a few items and events I thought you might want to know about. One is coming up real soon, this Saturday, October 11th.
Earthsave?s October 11th dinner will feature a live presentation by an expert nutritionist; Deborah Kauffmann, RD, LDN, former nutrition director of the Center for Eating Disorders at St. Joseph Medical Center, will discuss some facts and fictions pertaining to weight management. Deborah?s talk will focus mainly on how we can develop a more mindful approach to eating. This should be good! Please invite your friends!
