Christopher Wyatt, Food for Life instructor and retail food and beverage manager at Renown, is collaborating with PCRM to offer a Food for Life six-class series beginning Sept. 27 at Renown Health.

“The series can help anyone who wants to lose weight, lower their cholesterol, fight the potential for cancer, or simply feel energized and healthier,” Wyatt says.

In the classes, participants will learn simple ways to change or improve upon their diet. They’ll be introduced to new foods and interesting ways to prepare them, and learn their health benefits and how they discourage disease.
“Food for Life classes are much more than lectures or textbook lessons,” Wyatt says. “They’re a great balance of group discussion, nutritional information, short videos, cooking presentations and food tastings.”

Sign-up! To participate in the Food for Life series at Renown or to receive more information, please contact Wyatt at (Hometown Health members who complete the series earn four Healthy Tracks points).

When: 4-5:30 p.m., Tuesdays from Sept. 27 to Nov. 1

Location: Renown Regional Medical Center, Artisans Room 107

Cost: $60 for the six-class series
