Culinary and Nutrition Collaborative Trainings
Health Promotion Council has partnered with The American Heart Association and GetHealthyPhilly to deliver three culinary and nutrition-based workshops on a quarterly basis for Food Service Department staff. Trainings are led by HPC’s chef and Culinary Support Services Coordinator. Training content focuses on general nutrition education, healthy cooking techniques, food safety, meal planning, and more!
HPC’s direct services approach provides individuals with education and skill-building opportunities to help them better manage their chronic diseases and/or help them minimize their risk of acquiring a chronic disease. HPC employs a host of trained health educators, community health workers, case managers, and patient navigators that work with individuals and families in their own communities. Direct services include (but are not limited to) nutrition education, cooking demonstrations, cancer and cardiovascular disease education, case management, and patient navigation assistance.
