ALMAS is aimed at improving the health and lives of Greenville’s Spanish-speaking women and their families — and a symposium planned by Padia and Mian on Feb. 16 will further that goal.
Open to the women and families participating in ALMAS, the event will take place from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Old Library at ECU. It will kick off with a dinner for the families, followed by health screenings, nutrition demonstrations, and health education workshops.
To put their new knowledge to use, families in attendance will each receive a cookbook written in Spanish and focused on eating healthy on a budget. They will also receive other health-related materials. And, in keeping with ALMAS’ comprehensive approach, volunteers will be providing child care and translation services.
