Emory Report | July 6, 2015

Learn how healthy eating can help protect against cancer at a brown bag lunch discussion and cooking demonstration Thursday, July 9, from noon to 1 p.m. in the John Kauffman Auditorium, room 5012, of the Winship Cancer Institute (Building C).

This Healthy Winship event is free and open to the public with no registration required.

Tiffany Barrett, registered dietitian and certified specialist in oncology nutrition, will discuss eating strategies and demonstrate healthy cooking.

Also at the event, Michael Staufacker, director of health administration, will talk briefly about the 2015 Move More Challenge, an eight-week physical activity program that begins Sept. 21 and continues through Nov. 15.

The challenge is designed to encourage faculty and staff to increase their daily movement, be part of a team and have fun. The program provides support, education and resources. Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase a Fitbit wearable fitness device to help track their daily movement.
