Health Fads—Fact or Fiction

with Patricia Downing



only 3 seats left

Almost every day we are bombarded in the media with some new “scientific” finding about what we should do to improve our health: drink coffee, don’t drink coffee; eat chocolate, don’t eat chocolate. Take a daily aspirin, don’t take aspirin; eat salt, don’t eat salt. Avoid carbohydrates; eat fats. What should we believe? This course will include the latest information about these and other current health fads—which to believe, which to ignore, and how to tell the difference. Hint: the news about chocolate is getting sweeter! (Class size limited to 10 students.)

Instructor: Patricia Downing Patricia is a registered nurse, clinical nurse specialist, author of nursing texts, and nurse educator with extensive experience in health education inside and outside the U.S. She earned a B.S. in Nursing from Wayne State University and a Master’s from the University of Washington.
