'Eat Healthy For Life'
In an effort to encourage its employees to "Eat Healthy for Life", PHC Nutritionist Naomi Rhein, RD, arranged for free healthy "smoothies" (made with fresh fruits and vegetables) to be served to the entire staff. "Obesity, diabetes, heart disease and so many other illnesses are directly related to nutrition," states Rhein. "So many employees, patients, families and members of the community are genuinely interested in how proper nutrition can help keep them healthy. It's always gratifying to watch someone actually improve his or her overall health by eating properly. Peninsula Hospital Center is always willing to provide an educational speaker from its Food and Nutrition Department at meetings throughout the community."
