CHICAGO, Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Resurrection University will host a panel of speakers, Dr. Kristine Tohtz, Dr. David Miller, and Chef and Dietitian Eric Meredith, to share their insights for the University's second Thinking Out Loud: Food as Medicine event on Thursday, February 23 from 5:30 – 8 p.m. at its Wicker Park campus located at 1431 N. Claremont in Chicago. This free event is open to health care professionals and the general public.
Just in time for anyone who made a New Year's resolution to lose weight. (Most people give up on diets after five weeks!) - Food as Medicine II looks at the pros and cons of popular diets while emphasizing the proven ways to eat healthier in order to stay healthy during every stage of life. Learn about various diets, how the body responds to them, and general dietary guidelines. Based on the concept of "food as medicine," the experts will give audience members a closer look at the ways in which the food we eat, impacts our health, and our waistline.
"As a health sciences University, it's important to consider the many ways to educate about choosing a healthier lifestyle," said Resurrection University President, Dr. Therese A. Scanlan. "Based on the vast amount of information available, it's hard to figure out what to eat at this point. We're bringing our three experts in holistic health back to ResU to discuss getting back to the basics; Eating for health is the goal and for some that might bring about healthier physical changes as well."
The three holistic health experts will share their unique perspectives on healthy eating during this evening event. After the discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions during a Q & A session, followed by healthy-cooking demonstrations led by Chef Eric Meredith and Dr. David Miller.
