Community Nutrition Workshops in Denver

A few months back I wrote a grant for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics so that I could present a nutrition lecture on ways to get the most out of our produce and waste less food.

Older Adult Nutrition I'm currently interning at a long term care facility. There are two long-term care wings and a rehabilitation wing. Most of the residents are above the age 65, a lot of them are in their 80's-90's.
