This year, the Sussex County Health Coalition has worked hard to align with current Healthy Neighborhood Initiatives. One key area of focus is Health Lifestyles. This past fall, through our Worksite Wellness program, the Coalition has worked collaboratively with the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension to offer two educational seminars as a Lunch and Learn.
The first Lunch and Learn, "Mindful Eating for Good Health,” was an informational session on sensible eating, good health, and general nutrition centered around ‘My Plate.’ Attendees learned how to proportion their meals but still enjoy their food, what foods they should or should not eat, and tips on balancing their food intake with physical activity.
The second Lunch and Learn offered was a training on "Health Talk Hints.” This program was developed to give people tips on how to improve their conversations with their doctor.
Attendees learned techniques on:
- How to prepare before their visit
- What to do during the appointment
- How to follow-up after the visit
Both seminars were free and open to the public, and a healthy lunch was provided. There was a total of 28 attendees at both seminars combined.
