The Commission on Aging will hear about the importance food plays in chronic illness, mental and physical health. The meeting will include guest experts and a discussion about what our community can do to better meet the nutritional needs of our older community members, both during a global pandemic and in less stressful times.
The discussion will take place during the Commission on Aging’s monthly meeting at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 21. Meetings are currently in an online format.
Meeting guests include:
- Dr. Neal Barnard, President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
- Suzanne Washington, CEO, Meals on Wheels People
