Participation is free, but registration is required. The program will be recorded , so registrants can view at their convenience if they can't participate in the live sessions. Registrants will receive a separate email with a link to the Zoom platform where the sessions will be hosted. For your security, only registered participants will have access to the link, and a password will be required.

Eating the Med Way has been proven to protect against chronic illness. In some cases, eating the Med Way may even result in decreasing medication taken for high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes.
