Date Change for Next BFMC Nutrition Class

Adapted from Baystate Franklin Medical Center (BFMC) press releases:

The upcoming installment of BFMC's free nutrition class with Baystate Health Dietitian Alicia Walter, MS, RDN/LDN, that was scheduled for Wednesday, August 3rd, will take place on Wednesday, July 27th, instead.  This month's topic will be Learn to be Supermarket Savvy.  As usual, the class will take place in Conference Room C at the hospital, from 10:15AM to 11:15AM and be repeated from 11:30AM to 12:30PM.

A graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, with an MS in Public Health Nutrition, Ms. Walter has worked as a clinical dietitian and nutrition counselor/educator throughout Baystate Health for the past 12 years. “It is important for people to pay attention to the advice of nutrition experts and how they can best manage their food choices. When they get together in these classes, they can share their experiences and offer support for each other,” said Walter. “I wanted to offer a wide variety of classes, covering all aspects of nutrition, from healthy cooking, to the benefits of the various food groups, to food shopping. There is something in each class offered for everyone.”

Though geared toward Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation patients, this session is open to the public and participants can attend either timeslot.  In addition, no pre-registration is necessary.  For more information, please email Alicia Walter or call her at (413) 773-2197.
