USA’s Our Neighborhood Healthcare Clinic Dietician to Present Lecture, “Eating in Color”


The University of South Alabama’s Our Neighborhood Healthcare Clinic will host a lecture, “Eating in Color,” presented by the clinic’s dietician Emily Beaird on Thursday, March 31, from noon-1:30 p.m. in the USA Medical Center 10th floor dining room.  The free event is open to the public and includes a light lunch. 

The lecture is part of Our Neighborhood Healthcare Clinic’s new Learning Collaborative, a community lunch-and-learn program that features different topics each month on health and wellness.  This month’s theme coincides with the American Dietetic Association’s observance of National Nutrition Month, which encourages consumers to adopt healthier eating habits and active lifestyles.

The new Learning Collaborative is one of several programs offered through Our Neighborhood Healthcare Clinic, a fast-track urgent care clinic that provides after-hours treatment.  The clinic also has a diabetes support group and weight loss and nutrition programs.

To make reservations for the “Eating in Color” lecture or for more information on clinic services, the Learning Collaborative, diabetes support group or other clinic-sponsored programs and events, call (251) 471-7944. Information can also be found online at .

Our Neighborhood Healthcare Clinic is operated by USA’s College of Nursing and funded through a five-year grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
