Health Fair Experiences!

I was privileged to be a part of health fairs for city employees of two cities....South Bend and Mishawaka!  I was able to chat with office workers, park employees, police officers, firefighters, city government officials....including the Mayor of Mishawaka!  I was also able to network with fellow healthcare providers.  Some people that stopped by seemed a bit wary of me....guess they might be feeling "guilty" about their eating habits.  Guilt has no place in my work with clients :)  Some people shared details about their increased awareness of healthy eating.  Some people shared amazing stories about the power of quality food during cancer treatment and fertility issues.   Hippocrates was right...."Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food."  I can't wait to see what the future holds from the connections I have made in the last two days.  Life is good :)   .....and now, to find that organic pear I just bought from Purple Porch Co-Op..........
