Access to affordable and nutritious food is critical to good health. So how can you make the best food choices for you and your family?

In an upcoming installment of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health’s (D-HH’s) Healthy Living Series of virtual webinars, D-HH experts will discuss this topic. “Back to Basics: Food as Healthcare” will address recent research on how food can prevent disease and debunk common nutrition myths. Panelists include:

“Healthy, balanced eating not only helps us feel great, but it also plays an important role in long-term health and can be a preventative measure for avoiding various health conditions,” Al-Nimr said. “Navigating nutrition information online about what and how we should eat can be confusing. But nutrition doesn't have to be difficult. We look forward to discussing how eating the right foods can be fun, affordable and delicious, is worth doing and is the ultimate form of self-care.”
