A better understanding of food labels awaits attendees of the Spring 2014 Madigan Library Forum, at which Penn College’s registered dietician will discuss how to effectively read labels to make healthy choices and fit likable foods into daily meals and snacks. Sharon A. Berger’s presentation, “Eating Your Way to Wellness Through Label Reading,” will be held from noon-1 p.m. Wednesday in the library’s second-floor reading loft. A registered dietician and part-time faculty member in the School of Health Sciences, Berger will help participants break through the confusing language of food labels, including nutrient-content claims, nutrition facts and ingredient lists, among others. Penn College has been designated as a Fit-Friendly worksite by the American Heart Association for its commitment to employee health and wellness. The library program is being offered as a professional development activity – staff can register through the Employee Information System – and it will also count toward employee wellness programs.
