This spring, stay active and cope with stress by moving it on out! This program is a virtual program. Sign up to get our weekly emails, track and report your physical activity!
It begins on April 5th!
We will start at the beginning of April and take you through May.
All participants will receive an email once a week (on Mondays, starting April 5th) with the wellness topic of the week and link to an exercise video (optional). At the end of the week, you will report your physical activity. Any amount counts!
Of course, the best prize of all is feeling good & less stressed! To help motivate you, we will have prizes for participation and grand prize drawings at 4 weeks and 8 weeks. Grand prizes will be delivered by mail, but due to the cost of postage, participation prizes must be picked up.

We will cover all these questions and more, while giving you the most evidence-based and up to date information that will leave you feeling confident about your food choices.

Virtual Course via Zoom!
Thursdays, May 6, 13, 20, 27 at 7:30pm
In social media and popular culture, there is a big debate about which type of foods are better, organic or conventional. In this webinar, we discussed what they are, how these foods are grown, labeling, and which one is better for you. This was an informative webinar for knowing where your food comes from and what different food labels really mean.
The following is discussed in the webinar:
- Definitions of what organic and conventional foods are
- Organic food labels and what they mean
- Big factory farms vs. small local farms
- GMOs & “No-till” farming
- Common assumptions about organic and conventional farming
Feel free to contact Julie if you have questions or need nutrition advice or join her Q&A session on April 1st. (No… it’s not a joke)!
And of course, you can always find her latest nutrition tips and science-based recommendations on www.cancerdietitian.com.
