Eating Healthy in Grad School Luncheon

Eating healthy impacts your cognitive performance, increases productivity, and boosts your immune systems! Do you want to learn how to eat better in grad school, but don’t know where to start? Join us to learn about healthy eating, nutrition, and dieting from Justin Parel, a graduate student in the Department of Kinesiology and Community Health at UIUC. He will be discussing “flexible dieting,” a relatively new approach to dieting ,and we will go through some healthy choices for eating out in the Champaign-Urbana area! Please RSVP for lunch here!
