Healthy Food Demonstration

Healthy Food Demonstration

Earlier this week AtlantiCare Health Educator Laura Engelmann and Richard Stockton College intern Brittany Reilly partnered with the Atlantic City Health Department to provide health education to city employees and residents at a diabetic screening in City Hall. During the two-hour event they provided nearly 100 people with information about incorporating healthy foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, into their diet. Fresh fruit and homemade trail mix was served, and the trail mix recipe was handed out. AtlantiCare was welcomed by city employees and residents and individuals appeared receptive to the information. Our next food demo is scheduled for April 3rd during AtlantiCare’s Community Walking Challenge Kick-Off from 10 a.m. to noon at City Hall.
