When it comes to Men's Health Month and healthy eating, we must understand how everything we eat and drink matters, and we must know our numbers.

Spectrum's integrated care team comprised of our providers specializing in adult medicine, behavioral health, and nutrition remind us monthly during the "Food As Medicine" series by providing tips on preventing and healing diseases with a plant-based diet and providing blood pressure screenings. 

This month's session focused on limiting saturated fat (butter, fat around meats) and trans fat (cookies, cake, icing, crackers) while increasing intake of unsaturated fat (plant sources such as seeds, nuts, olives, fish).

Join us for our upcoming "Food as Medicine" sessions on Tue. July 10th and Tue. August 14th from 4-5:30pm at Spectrum Community Health Center located at 5201 Haverford Ave. Call 215.471.2761 for more information.
