Improving Your Health Through The Gut- National Nutrition Month Event

On March 19th we celebrated National Nutrition Month. National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical habits. Vitalia Senior Residences at Westlake welcomed Katie Hummer, RDN, LD. Her talk focused on probiotics and proper digestion to improve your immune system and overall health. Katie is a registered dietician at Life Care Center of Westlake and a graduate of the University of Akron. Participants enjoyed fruit infused water and a make their own parfait bar. Katie provided take home materials and was available after the talk to answer questions about digestive health.
