Nourishing Your Eyes with OSU Extension Service: Wednesday, May 10th from 9am to noon

WHAT Is It?

May is National Healthy Vision Month! Increase your knowledge of the parts of the eye and awareness of strategies to help prevent eye diseases by participating in the Nourishing Your Eyes interactive workshop at the Oregon State University Extension Office in Redmond.

Participants will learn about foods that promote eye health through the lesson with hands-on activities and discussions, recipe preparation and sampling. The lesson includes handouts and healthful recipes to take home.

This Program may also help you:

  • Cope with and relieve stress
  • Learn ways to stretch your food dollars and still serve tasty, nutritious meals.
  • Get reliable, research-based information to help sort out fact from fiction in your health information.

“Our goal is to provide nutrition and overall wellness education with optional, online support to help adults sustain a healthy lifestyle,” says Glenda Hyde, OSU Extension faculty.

WHO Should Attend?
This lesson will benefit people 50 and older to develop strategies to prevent vision loss. Any adult can benefit from the information, though. It is part of the “Nourishing Boomers and Beyond” series.

This class meets the Health Engagement Model (HEM) health education requirement for some insurance companies.

WHEN Is It?
Wednesday, May 10th from 9am to noon. The class fee is $15.00. Class size is limited.
