COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — University of South Carolina's Patricia Moore-Pastides is hosting an event to celebrate National Heart Health Month and introduce food that supports a healthy lifestyle.

The wife of USC President Harris Pastides is encouraging students, faculty and staff to attend the program from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday in the Russell House Ballroom on the Columbia campus.

University spokeswoman Megan Sexton says Moore-Pastides is discussing foods that are good for you, and good to eat as well. She's an author with an academic background in public health.

The University of South Press has published her book "Greek Revival: Cooking for Life." She is working on a second cook book about growing healthy food items and educating families about proper nutrition.
