Health Hub

Thursday, April 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Members & guests- free! RSVP below.

Please join us for our second session of Health Hub. This program intends to draw like-minded, science-focused individuals who are interested in wellbeing and related lifestyle behaviors. The topic will change each session, and we are open to suggestions for future chats. During this session, we will discuss “trending diets.” Are you sick of seeing a new fad diet pop up each week? Here, we will explore diets that have been proven to contribute to overall wellness, how to determine which are evidence-based, and how to avoid any “fake news” nutrition updates. There will be plenty of time to discuss some existing diets and research, whatever nutrition articles or diets you have heard come up recently, and discuss how we might incorporate some of what we learned into our own daily routines. Hope to see you there!
