Eating Healthy During the Summer
Whitney A. Henderson, Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Manager of the Loyola University of Chicago and of the School-Based Health Center at Proviso East High School, will visit the Maywood Public Library District on Monday, June 13th, from 2:00-3:00 pm, to instruct people on healthy eating habits. Henderson states that practicing healthy eating habits can help people feel good about themselves, while giving them the energy they need for their daily activities. It can also help people maintain a healthy weight, while preventing diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Old habits may have to be changed, but eating well may be a lot easier than one realizes.
