Horn will focus the workshops on using university-based research to guide residents into developing lifestyle habits that will keep them at a healthy weight, as well as promote their own physical fitness.
“We’re going to learn to use food journals, goal setting and other proven strategies to manage weight,” Horn revealed.
Food demonstrations will also be part of the workshops, since recipe modification and a solid understanding of what constitutes good nutrition are integral parts of weight loss strategies.
A pre-registration fee of $5 to cover the cost of hand-outs and supplies will reserve a space for either workshop. The registration deadline for both workshops is Friday, February 8.
