OPELOUSAS — Medical personnel heard the basics of healthful eating and managing their weight during a recent lunch-hour presentation at Opelousas General Hospital.
LSU AgCenter nutrition agent Katie Guedry provides the information during two 30-minute sessions once a month in St. Landry Parish.
“We started this program in January and have the employees bring their lunch and receive information on improving their health,” she said.
The goal is to show people how to control portions to reach a healthy weight and keep it off, she said.
