A group of Dietetic students from Owens Community College recently took their knowledge out of the classroom to share it with families and children at a Health Fair sponsored by the Open Dorr Family Resource Center, King Road, Toledo.
Along with many other health professionals from the community, the Owens students were on hand to offer free nutritional advice to those who attended the Health Fair. The Dietetic students set up a display about good nutrition and how to adopt healthy eating habits. Their presentation also included a "food pyramid" that explains the different types of food that should be eaten daily in a healthy diet.
The Owens students who participated were: Shelia Marvin of wanton, Becky Reichard of Oregon, Jennifer Schmidt of Sylvania and Donna Tobak of Oregon. Ann Tahy of Portage, a Registered Dietitian and Owens instructor, also assisted the students.
"Our Dietetic students are interested in sharing their knowledge and educating the community about smart and healthy nutritional practices," said Marty Johnson, chair of the Dietetic Technology program at Owens Community College. "We were glad to participate in the Health Fair. Our students are always eager to offer any nutritional advice, especially to children and families."
