    We recognize that our dietary habits make a significant impact on heart health – and some of what we “know” may not be the most accurate. In celebration of National Heart Health Month, Dr. Melanie Burns, RDN will guide us in food label reading with a keen eye on sodium content and how to prepare foods at home to be lower in sodium. Attendance at both sessions is not required. Limited to 12 participants.


    The first session will meet at County Market (Study Room, FL 2) and will include a brief update of heart healthy guidelines and an opportunity to put that knowledge into practice in the grocery store aisles reading food labels.


    The second session will meet on Eastern’s campus in Klehm Hall 2309 where we will modify and prepare recipes to be more sodium friendly. So, be sure to bring your appetite for delicious, lower sodium foods!

    This four-story building was the 2nd building built on Eastern's campus after the iconic Old Main Castle and was finished in 1908.  It included parlors, fireplaces, fourth floor maid's quarters, a matron's apartment, and a dining room.  It's registered as a historic landmark, due to it being the first women's college residence hall on the campus of a State University.   You are invited to come hear the story of how it came to be and the impact it has had on the thousands of residents who have lived there.  Hear about the lore of its haunting to the distinguished visitors it has hosted.
