Classes starting next week at NO COST to participants! 

Med Instead of Meds was created by a group of nutrition and health professionals from NC State University and NC Division of Public Health. Eating the Med Way has been proven to protect against chronic illness. In some cases, eating the Med Way may even result in decreasing medications taken for blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. (Check with your health-care professional before changing any prescribed medications.)

Virtual classes will be held on Wednesdays from noon–1 p.m. via Zoom from April 15 through May 20, 2020 (six sessions total). The course material builds from week to week and is most beneficial if participants attend all six sessions.

Each class session will focus on a component of the Med Way and will include Med tips, easy swaps, recipes, and more. Participants will also learn about the importance of practicing mindfulness when eating. At the end of each 1-hour class, participants will have the option to stay for a 10-15 minute food demonstration. We will feature recipes from the Med Instead of Meds curriculum.

This course is at no cost to participants but registration is required.
