Little known fact about me (East Sac Mom “June”): My degree is in Kinesiology, which is the study of movement. I have a passion for physical activity, being outdoors, and eating healthy. Yes, I am totally that mom who serves organic low-sugar cake to my son, even on his birthday, and brings baby carrots when it’s my turn for snack at the play group. Don’t worry though, I have plenty of friends who regularly harass me for it. I’m sorry, I just don’t think a toddler needs an Easter basket full of chocolate and marshmallows! Whew. Now that I have that off my chest, let me share with you the awesome opportunity East Sacramento Moms have coming up next week to learn to feed our families healthier diets.
You are invited to a Prevention Plus lecture by Staci Ellis, RN, BSN, entitled, “Feeding the Hungry Brain”. The lecture will be held at 7PM on Tuesday, February 22nd at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral (2620 Capitol Avenue, Sacramento, 95816).
Staci Ellis is an RN and board-certified Holistic Nurse. Her focus includes working with families in need of improving their overall health status and decreasing their risk of developing chronic disease. Her areas of specialty include stress management, disease prevention and family nutrition, with an emphasis on chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and autoimmune disorders, as well as ADD/ADHD and other conditions included in the autism spectrum.
Staci will lecture on the science behind how what we eat affects not only our physical health, but our mental health. Individuals and families dealing with learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, autism will especially benefit. However, this is a universal message of health; she will provide tips, tools, and motivation to take control of your health picture and mental acuity through better nutrition. This event is *FREE* and open to the public. Please invite anyone you know who could benefit from better health.
