The Grocery Store Tour

Beginning tomorrow, November 2, at Martin's in LaVale at 10 AM, WMHS will begin our free guided tour of one of our local grocery stores.  There are 4 other tours scheduled:   WalMart (11/8 at 2 PM), Food Lion in Cresaptown (11/9 at 2 PM), Food Lion in Frostburg (11/15 at 2 PM) and More for Less on Industrial Blvd (11/17 at 2 PM).  The intent of the tour is to learn how to make healthy choices when shopping for food for you and your family, as well as how to read food labels.  As WMHS takes the lead in our region for improving the health status of our population, the grocery store tour fits perfectly with our goal.  Thanks to Allison Heavner, a registered dietician at WMHS, for taking the lead on this initiative.
