By August 29, 2017 No Comments

The only time most people see their physicians is when they have a problem that brings them to the doctor’s office or hospital. St. Joseph Health decided to switch things up, putting doctors where people go to make nutrition decisions: the grocery store. Its success has earned it first place in the “Community Affairs” category of PR Daily’s 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility Awards.

Doctors and nutritionists  show parents key items to include to stave off hunger during long school and work days, avoid sugar and carb crashes, as well as safety tips to keep foods fresh. Processed and frozen foods might not always be the quickest and most convenient, despite what the packaging might claim. During the event, health professionals guide parents toward easy and affordable options to keep their families healthy.
