March is Women’s History Month, a wonderful time to celebrate the many contributions women make to the world. To honor them, we’re creating a special menu just for women!

You are cordially invited to join Allison Harrell, Registered Dietitian and Certified Culinary Medicine Specialist, and Ameigh Worley, MD, a board-certified OB/GYN with AdventHealth, in the Center for Health & Wellbeing’s Nutrition Theatre for a meal designed to put women’s health first.

You have two options for attending this program – save your seat in the Nutrition Theatre or click here to register for our free webinar and watch it from home. Whether you’re watching from inside the Nutrition Theatre or from home, you’ll also have the opportunity to share your questions and comments with Allison and Dr. Worley during the program.

This is a demonstration-style cooking program, so our in-person attendees should prepare to sit back, relax and let our chef prepare the meal while you enjoy the delicious items. All attendees, both online and in-person, will receive a booklet for specific recipes TBA. Check our website for updates.

This program is presented by Allison Harrell and Dr. Ameigh Worley and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation and AdventHealth.
