World Diabetes Day 2014, Taste of Health
On World Diabetes Day 2014, November 14 we were excited to host, A Taste of Health, a nutrition and wellness exhibition showcasing the diversity of healthy eating. The event focused on nutrition within the older adult community, and the importance of preparing healthy, diabetic friendly meals and snacks. Guest were be treated to a delicious lunch prepared by Chef Rolando "Ro" Cantrell. 
We love our beautiful seniors! Taste of Health guests were asked to wear blue to support those affected by diabetes. We were happy to see a sea of blue on World Diabetes Day, which happened to fall on Blue Friday this year.
Our community partners, JenCare were on hand to discuss the senior health care and wellness. We love and support JenCare and all of the opportunities the JenCare experience offers to seniors. Please visit to learn more about their services for seniors.
