The CT Convergence Institute Provides Health Café at Parkville Senior Center



On September 25th, Dr. Helen Wu and the community outreach team visited Parkville Senior Center in Hartford to provide a Health Café on sugar consumption. Attendees learned about sugar intake suggestions, hidden sugar, what to look for in food labels and healthy alternatives. The interactive demonstration concluded with participants trying an inexpensive veggie/fruit smoothie. CT Convergence Institute Health Cafes fall under the CT Community Health Science Initiative which aims to educate the community on the importance of starting or maintaining a healthy lifestyle via nutrition and physical activity.
