SJEH Observes Nutrition Month

The nutritionists at St. John's Episcopal Hospital observed National Nutrition Month, the month of March, with an interactive informational display. Sponsored by the American Dietetic Association, National Nutrition Month promotes the importance of nutrition as a key component of health and illustrates the flexibility of nutrition recommendations and dietary guidelines. Pictured, nutritionists posed behind samples of two lunches, one featuring a healthy turkey sandwich and the other a cheeseburger with fries and asked passers-by to guess the number of calories in each. The nutritionists were (from left to right): Eva Gouliaberis, dietetic intern; Meredith Cummings, RD; Stephanie Cordaro, RD; Rosi Rubin, RD; Miriam Hoeffner, RD; and Natalia Botero, RD.
