I’m so happy to share my recent feature in Palm Springs Life (California’s Prestige Magazine) Annual Medical Guide (July 2012)…with the newly named Vitality insert (formerly Medical Guide).
This special July Issue showcases the Greater Palm Springs TOP DOCTORS as chosen by their peers. As an added bonus, separate copies of Vitality (formerly Medical Guide) are distributed to valley hospitals and clinics, medical offices, health & fitness centers, chambers of commerce, pharmacies, and other locations including various new homeowner welcome packs.
I really love the name change to Vitality Magazine…it really showcases the new branding and overall feeling of health & wellness that exemplifies the lifestyle and healing environment of Greater Palm Springs.
The Jamie Oliver Foundation is launching its first-ever Food Revolution Day, May 19th, a global day of action to inspire, educate and empower people everywhere to Stand Up for Real Food. Thousands of people worldwide will participate in events to raise awareness on preventing diet-realted diseases, and to arm people with the knowledge and tools to make healthier food choices.
Please visit foodrevolutionday.com to find and create a local food event where you can share skills and knowledge about food with your community through cooking classes, gardening tutorials, sessions about starting a food blog and tours of farmers markets. At the site, you can also sign up to host a dinner party and even request to bring food education to your school or workplace. Already, more than 800 groups from 45 countries have signed up to take action.
Here in Palm Springs, I am partnering with The City of Palm Springs Office of Sustainability on May 19th to promote healthy eating to the kids and families that attend the Bike Rodeo at the Camelot Theatre – same area as the Farmers Market. Lots of giveaways, activities and fun for everyone!
To increase awareness beyond a single day of action, I’ll also be meeting with local school boards and community groups to discuss opportunities to bring fun food education to our children and seniors in our community. Another program that I’m very excited about is the AIDS Assistance Program, a non-profit, volunteer driven organization which provides food vouchers for nutritional support for low-income men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in the Greater Palm Springs Area. My goal is to draft a program series that will offer meal planning & suggestions, cooking lessons and grocery store tips & tours to make the most of their very modest budget while providing nutrient dense meals to help strengthen the immune system and provide an optimal environment for their medications.
The majority of the world’s population is more likely to die from obesity than from hunger. In fact, in the US, more people die from diet-related diseases every year than drugs, alcohol and war combined. Food Revolution Day aims to empower people to make healthier food choices that lead to healthier lives.
Let’s take a Stand for Real Food and improve the lives of our children, families and communities!
