Nursing students on nutrition kick

Third-year nursing students at Vancouver Island University are trying to improve the health of the community.

With the world focusing on food supply, third-year nursing students at Vancouver Island University are trying to improve the health of the community.

The students have partnered with Lifeline Harewood to host a nutrition workshop March 22 at John Barsby Community School from 6:30-7:15 p.m.

Participants are provided with educational material, recipe booklets and food samples. Discussion focuses on nutritious, low cost foods, and how to incorporate those foods into a diet.

“Our goal is to improve the health of the community through dietary changes by promoting good nutrition in homes,” said Serena Franz, event organizer.
