Roosevelt Medical Center To Host Elizabeth And Friends
Elizabeth and Friends is back! The annual women’s health and wellness event will once again be hosted by Roosevelt Medical Center in an effort to keep women in the community excited about maintaining their health through a variety of topics in a way that is fun, inspiring and engaging.
The event is taking place on April 12, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Legion Hall in Culbertson.
This year’s topic will focus on the benefits of better nutrition for women at every age and will be presented by Elizabeth Kleppen, a Mid-Level Medical Practitioner, and Tammy Bearce, a nutritionist, for RMC.
Attendees will enjoy juices, fruits and vegetables, and have a chance to win healthy cookbooks and other door prizes.
The public through surveys taken at last year’s Elizabeth & Friends event selected this year’s event topic. “When it comes to eating, we all have strong habits. This session of Elizabeth and Friends is about permanently improving our eating habits through thoughtful approaches, not following the fad of the week,” said Kleppen.
Those who attend will learn about the benefits and disadvantages of lactose free and gluten free diets, the overwhelming overconsumption of sugar and salt in the American diet, and chronic illnesses related to poor nutrition. Other topics will include the relationship between sleep, obesity and nutrition and the importance of maintaining a balanced diet.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jaimee Green, Marketing/Foundation Director at (406) 787-6476.
