Virginia Mason Memorial offers no-cost cooking class for local chefs

Calling all Yakima Valley restaurant chefs for a no-cost, plant-based
cooking workshop at Virginia Mason Memorial hospital

YAKIMA — Virginia Mason Memorial is inviting local restaurant chefs to a no-cost, hands-on workshop that focuses on plant-based cooking. This workshop is being held in conjunction with Food Day, a day set aside each year to inspire Americans to make healthy changes to their diets and food policies.
The workshop will be held Monday, Oct. 23, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesday, Oct. 24, from 8 a.m. until noon. Chefs are requested to come only with an open mind and willingness to adapt a plant-based menu item.

The typical American diet is contributing to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems that are prevalent nationally and here in the Yakima Valley. Those problems cost Americans more than $150 billion per year.
Evidence shows that eating a plant-based diet has health benefits. This impacts professional cooks as customers with special requests are now seeking establishments where they can obtain a whole-food, plant-based option on a regular basis or on a catering menu. Virginia Mason Memorial’s workshop aims to offer chefs the tools to bring these customers into their dining establishments.

The workshop will be held at Virginia Mason Memorial hospital. To register, contact Virginia Mason Memorial’s Executive Chef Jason Patel by Oct. 6 by calling 509-249-5357 or via email at jasonpatel@yvmh.org. Space is limited.

Memorial offers class to learn infant CPR, Sept. 7

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Rebecca Teagarden, Memorial Communications, 509-577-5051

Memorial offers class to learn infant CPR
Sept. 7, 2016

Unintentional choking and suffocation are the leading causes of all injury deaths for infants under 1 year of age. Being prepared for such an emergency can make all the difference.

Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital is offering an opportunity for parents and caregivers of infants to learn when a baby needs rescue breathing, how to start CPR and how to care for an infant who’s choking. The class is Sept. 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Memorial’s Community Education Center, 2506 W. Nob Hill Blvd., Yakima. No registration is needed. The cost is $5 per person.

This is not a CPR certification class. But knowing how to respond in the first few minutes of an emergency – before professional help arrives – can mean the difference between life and death. If you are the parent or caregiver of an infant, learn infant CPR!

For more information, call 509-248-7322 or visit the Classes and Events page at yakimamemorial.org.
