Men in the Kitchen: Nutrition and Health
OKLAHOMA CITY (June 2, 2017) – Obesity is a serious health problem in the United States. More than a third (34.9 percent, or 78.6 million) of American adults are obese. In the Hispanic community, the issue is most prevalent in men, with 80 percent of Mexican American men obese, according to the American Heart Association.
These days men actually spend more time in the kitchen than their fathers, and they are sharing the work more with their wives, buying groceries in the supermarket, etc. But still, men can gain from learning more about health and nutrition when cooking.
Join Pam Patty, INTEGRIS community wellness dietitian, to learn practical tips for preparing healthy meals. The main goal is to help Hispanic men have options in easy meal preparation.
The Men in the Kitchen: Nutrition and Health presentation will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13, at INTEGRIS Southwest Medical Center, 4200 S. Douglas Ave., Suite B-10, Oklahoma City, OK 73109.
