Event Details

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month! Come join Dr. Jim Distelhorst for an up-to-date talk on colorectal cancer and how screening, diet, and a healthy lifestyle can reduce your risk. Discover healthy lifestyle approaches and how eating right, being active, and knowing about cancer screening is the best way to stay well and reduce your cancer risk.

Next, we will move into the teaching kitchen with Amy Reuter, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, to apply what you learned into everyday foods and a healthy pattern of eating. Through a cooking demo and tasty samples, you will learn about the importance of a fiber-rich diet full of whole grains, fruits & vegetables and the possible role of probiotic and prebiotic foods in promoting a healthy colon. Three tasty recipes will be featured including a mixed berry smoothie, a kale edamame quinoa salad, and cinnamon-apple energy bites.

What To Expect: In this class, participants learn from a physician and registered dietitian nutritionist about colon cancer prevention & screening including delicious foods that creatively boost the fiber content of meals and snacks.

  • Class is 2 hours long
