Join OKT for a dialogue about “The Health Status of Grand Rapids Southeast Neighborhoods.”  Did you know that the African American women living in Grand Rapids southeast neighborhoods eat more fruits and vegetables than other women living in the rest of Kent County? Nutrition smarts is something take pride in … but how is our urban environment truly impacting our overall health? Let’s share information and stories that can help us discover how to create improved wellness  for our families and neighbors. OKT’s executive director, Lisa Oliver-King will facilitate the dialogue. Our cooking coaches will prepare and serve nutritious (delicious!) refreshments for this free event.
