With all the sweets and meats, eggnog and high-calorie desserts served during the holidays, it’s easy for folks to indulge.
Not to fear. Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital in Solvang is offering free classes for people who want to get back on track — or stay on track — with their healthy dietary habits in 2018.
SYV Cottage Hospital invites the community to attend free Nutrition & Diabetes Education classes beginning Jan. 5 and through March 20.
All classes take place in the front conference room at SYV Cottage Hospital, located at 2050 Viborg Road, Solvang. Classes are led by Stacey Bailey, a clinical dietitian with Cottage Health.
“Begin a healthy new year with these fun, free information-filled classes,” Bailey said. “You’re welcome to bring your own lunch to eat during class while we learn together. There’s no RSVP required and I hope you will attend whenever you can.”
Since joining Cottage Health in mid-2011, Bailey has provided inpatient and outpatient dietary management and counseling services, while assisting in the formulation of meal and menu planning specifically for SYV Cottage Hospital.
One-on-one nutrition sessions with Bailey are also available with a doctor’s referral.
