"Eat Good, Stay Healthy through the Holidays" Topic of next USA Stroke Support Group Meeting

 
"Eat Good.But Stay Healthy Through The Holidays" is the timely topic of the next USA Medical Center Stroke Support Group meeting to be held from 6 p.m.-7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 18 in the USA Medical Center's 10th floor dining room.
The guest speaker will be Amanda Miller, USA Medical Center registered dietitian who regularly works with stroke patients in planning meals.
"The holiday season is defined by parties, get-togethers and celebrations, most of which involve food, so healthy holiday eating can be a challenge," Miller said. "With a little preparation and dedication, everyone can enjoy these festivities. We'll discuss healthy alternatives to traditional holiday recipes."
In addition to Miller's talk, the meeting will feature a healthy holiday meal and door prizes. Reservations are requested and can be made by calling 471-7752, 471-7216 or e-mail ccarrigan@usouthal.edu.
The USA Medical Center is the first and only facility in Mobile to earn Primary Stroke Center certification from the Joint Commission, the nation's predominant health care standards-setting and accrediting body. The certification recognizes USA Medical Center's efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care and confirms USA Medical Center has the critical elements to achieve long-term success in improving stroke outcomes.
