Nutrition Workshops: If you’re like most people, you have plenty of questions about nutrition: What should I eat before and after a workout? How can I choose smarter, healthier foods at the grocery store or in a restaurant? Which vitamins should I be taking, if any? Get answers to these questions and more when you join Human Resources for an ongoing series of nutrition workshops. For more information about the workshops and to register, visit www.hr.upenn.edu/quality/wellness/workshops.aspx or contact Human Resources at (215) 898-5116 or suzsmith@upenn.edu.

Organic and Natural Foods: The Basics. April 21; noon–1 p.m.; free. It’s easy to be tempted by colorful packaging and alluring foods while in the grocery store. But how do you know if you’re buying nutritious food? Join us for a free lunchtime workshop where we’ll discuss how to make the best choices when shopping for food. Topics will include how to read a food label, the differences between organic and non-organic foods, the true definition of natural foods, and many other tips for leaving the store with healthy food. This workshop is sponsored by Human Resources and will be led by Karen Wagner, clinical nutrition specialist, Abramson Cancer Center.
