Cooking for one

We are learning to cook good and delicious meals that are healthy and easily made for one.
In the class you will be participating with others who share similar desires of learning to cook
for one. Everyone participates with hands on cooking and demonstration of meal preparation.
Participants will receive a copy of A Meal for Me: Simple Strategies for cooking for one.

The course is taught by our Executive Chef with Virginia Mason Memorial.

Kids Grief Workshops
Saturday / February 24 & April 28 / 2018
11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.
Cottage in the Meadow / 1208 S 48th Ave—Conference Room

Lunch will be provided for every family. Parents can enjoy lunch with the children before the activities begin.

For more information or to register for the workshop, contact Nicholas Valadez at nicholasvaladez@yvmh.org or 509-574-6746.

Virginia Mason Memorial is offering hands-on workshops to help guide children ages 5–17 and their parents or guardians through the grief associated with death.

Each workshop will provide an opportunity for children to express their feelings and thoughts through creative activities and meet others who have experienced a similar loss.

While children are participating in activities to assist their recovery, parents and guardians will be involved in their own grief recovery program geared for adults.

Pace International stopped in to `Ohana Mammography Center this week to give the staff a really big check

The fine folks at Pace International stopped in to `Ohana Mammography Center this week to give the staff a really big check to support breast cancer prevention and detection in the Yakima Valley. Pace, headquartered in Wapato, held a month-long fundraiser last October for Breast Cancer Awareness (pink pumpkin decorating! A raffle! pink dress-up day! breast cancer trivia games!) They plan to do it again next October, too! Thank you, Pace International!

Virginia Mason Healthcare’s ongoing effort to serve more antibiotic-free meats

“Although there’s more improvements to be made, my previous perception was that they were treated worse,” Matthew Eagens, Virginia Mason Memorial support services senior director, commented when stepping out of the first barn and into the second test barn, one of the more than 200 barns that now have windows and is being studied for the effects on flocks. Eagens, one of more than a dozen attendees, represented Virginia Mason Healthcare’s ongoing effort to serve more antibiotic-free meats.”

5 RESOLUTIONS FOR YOU AND THE PLANET

Happy New Year! Still in need of a resolution? Consider these for 2018:

  1. Follow the Healthy Eating Plate to create balanced and nutritious meals (and eat less red meat). Check out the Plant Based Menu items in the Café.
  2. Fly and drive less: Use a telecommuting service; and walk, bike or opt for public transportation. Employee indoor bike rack and showers coming in the Spring!
  3. Power down and cut your screen time: Commit to putting away your devices two hours before bed to reduce your exposure to blue light (and remember to unplug your chargers when not in use)
  4. Prioritize reusable and toxic-free products (some chemicals added to products do not break down in the environment), and reduce your own exposure to harmful chemicals
  5. Get active! Get outside to enjoy the great outdoors or join a gym. Consider 10 minute walking breaks, 3x a day for your 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise.
