Join Registered Dietitian Rebecca Sovdi (First Nations and Inuit Health) for the first session of the Learning Circle’s Aboriginal Nutrition Webinar & Videoconference series. This series of five sessions about the relationship between healthy eating and wellness throughout the life course will be presented by health professionals from First Nations and Inuit Health & the First Nations Health Authority.
Healthful eating and having a positive relationship with food is about so much more than nutrient content. Our eating habits are shaped by many different internal personal and cultural factors and external societal factors. Let’s chat about how food and food enjoyment in a society with so many different food choices can impact our mental well-being.
All are welcome to attend and participate in this FREE live videoconference and computer webinar session.
