In conjunction with National Cholesterol Education Month, LSU Bogalusa Medical Center Health Nutrition set up a cholesterol education display in side the Bogalusa Walmart on Sept. 25. The display, which featured samples of healthy food choices, also had a brief overview of lifestyle modifications to assist interested individuals in becoming more aware of cholesterol related health issues. Pertinent cholesterol education handouts were also provided. Shown, from left, in front of display are LSUBMC Outpatient Dietitian Dottie Kenda RD, LDN, CDE, and Linda Poullard, a Walmart employee. Not shown is LSUBMC Director of Nutrition Services Beth Knight RD, LDN. For more information on Bogalusa Medical Center’s outpatient nutrition services, call Kenda at 730-7177.
