CANCELLED (CORE) It’s Not Easy Eating Green: Learn More About a Healthy Diet

Registered Dietitian, Jennifer Ferguson

Updated March 12:


Following guidelines established by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital, our CORE program It’s Not Easy Eating Green scheduled for Tuesday, March 17th has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience.


South Hill – What you eat can have a big impact on your life.  A healthy diet helps to maintain or improve overall health.  It also provides the body with essential nutrition:  fluid, macronutrients, micronutrients, and adequate calories. 


What does a healthy diet consist of?  Does the way I prepare my food affect my health?  Can I substitute items to have a healthier diet?  Can small changes in what I eat really change my life?


If you are seeking answers to questions like these you should attend March’s C.O.R.E. (Community Out-Reach Education) Program at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital to learn about eating green.


This FREE program will be on Tuesday, March 17th at 4:00 p.m. in the VCU Health CMH Education Center inside the C.A.R.E. Building located at 1755 N. Mecklenburg Avenue in South Hill.


The speaker for the program will be Registered Dietitian, Jennifer Ferguson.  Jennifer has been a Registered Dietitian for 25 years.  She has served the South Hill community since 1994 and currently works at VCU Health CMH as the Clinical Nutrition Manager.


VCU Health CMH Chef, Tommy Pistolis, is going to prepare samples of tasty “green foods” for everyone in attendance to try!


Reservations are not required for this program; however, they are recommended.  For more information or to register to attend, please call (434) 447-0917 or visit www.vcuhealth.org/cmh-core
