When we lack essential nutrients, our mental health takes an impact. This unique cooking program will teach you how to prepare brain-boosting meals while you learn more about how the food we eat impacts our brain health. This class is led by Chef Collette Haw of CHWB’s Nourish Coffee Bar + Kitchen and Beverly Engel, who has nearly 30 years experience in creating innovative training and educational programs designed to promote health and wellbeing.
The program is presented by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
