Local doctors and health care professionals will team up to provide local residents with a nutrition blueprint to reach optimal health and reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, certain forms of cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease later in life.
The Kickstart Your Health Triangle initiative created by the nonprofit Physicians Committee in partnership with One Meal a Day, and supported by Durham Mayor Steve Schewel, Cary Mayor Harold Weinbrecht, and Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane, will provide the Triangle with a weekend of free events. All three mayors have proclaimed Saturday, Oct. 27, Kickstart Your Health Day.
The Kickstart Triangle Health Fest will feature local health organizations, a free fitness class, nutrition and healthy lifestyle tips, and a cooking demo. Special guests Suzy Amis Cameron and Neal Barnard, M.D., will be presenting and signing books.GO TO STORY
