With so many diet fads, it gets hard to distinguish which one is the best. Don’t worry —the registered dietitians at Augusta University Medical Center are here to help during National Nutrition Month. The month will bring awareness to the importance of making educated food choices, developing good eating habits and improving physical activity.
With their campaign, “Eat well to Live well,” the Augusta University Health, Food and Nutrition Services will host events promoting healthy diet and the benefits of physical activity.
“We encourage our patients, staff and greater Augusta community to eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains in order to optimize their health and live the life that they want to live,” said Marlei Simon, registered dietician.
Each Thursday in March, the department will host a “Rapid Fire Q&A with a Registered Dietitian” in the Terrace Café from noon to 1 p.m. Students, faculty and staff will get to ask questions about health and diet.
National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day will also be celebrated on March 13 by the department.
