Healthy holiday eating is on the menu for Center for Healthy Living's upcoming workshop

As the fall and winter holidays approach, the Center for Healthy Living wants to help employees keep their health and wellness in check. Therefore, the center is offering a workshop focused on healthy holiday eating from noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Córdova Recreational Sports Center's Demo Kitchen.

The workshop, presented by Ellen Welch, registered dietitian at the Center for Healthy Living, will help attendees identify weaknesses when it comes to holiday foods as well as providing tips on how to ensure that exercise needs are met. How to make healthy choices that help control weight and associated stress also will be covered. 

"Individuals who are trying to maintain a healthy regimen often struggle this time of year as food is part of almost every holiday celebration," Welch says. "The holidays, including the food, should be enjoyed, and I want to be able to help people do that while also being able to stay on track with their healthy lifestyle."

Register by Nov. 11 by calling 49-45505. Limited seating is available.

The Center for Healthy Living's workshops and resources are provided at no cost to benefits-eligible employees and dependents covered on a Purdue medical plan. Workshops are designed to educate attendees and improve their overall health. For more information on services offered at the center, visit the center online.
