Classes will be taught by Bauman College Holistic Nutrition student, Cassandra Gates, as part of an internship requirement for graduation. Cassandra will also be choosing two volunteers who will receive six weeks of personal, one-on-one nutrition consulting that will include a diet analysis, health evaluation report, sample meal plan, personalized recipes, and general health recommendations FOR FREE (over a $600 value per person!!). Sign-up for the one-on-one counseling spots will happen at the end of class one.
