Nevada City presentation on nurtrition, health and wellness

Submitted to The Union

Members of the public are invited to hear medical nutritionists Danielle Yantis and Janet Moore of Sierra Medical Nutrition Therapy discuss how to improve health and wellness at the dinner meeting of Business & Professional Women of Nevada County (BPWNC) on May 15 at Trolley Junction Restaurant at the Northern Queen in Nevada City. Yantis holds a bachelor of science degree in Nutrition Science and a master of science in Nutrition, as well as 23 years of clinical nutrition experience. Moore, who has over 20 years practicing integrative and functional medicine with the philosophy that food is medicine, will talk about attaining a healthy lifestyle, overcoming behaviors implicated in diabetes and obesity, and examine the part food plays in functional medicine and how to separate fact from fiction. Yantis will include a focus on treating underlying medical conditions that have metabolic consequences and Moore will focus on cognitive behavioral therapy and stages of change theory. Both women are devoted to helping clients overcome barriers to change using health coaching and client-driven goals that empower individuals to make realistic and sustainable changes to their lifestyles. Both understand that, while clients may know what a healthy lifestyle is and may sincerely desire it, they may not know how to overcome obstacles to attaining it.

Prepaid reservations are required for members and guests no later than May 12. Those who wish only to attend the meeting may reserve a spot for $5.
