March is National Nutrition Month!
Eating healthy is a journey shaped by many factors, including situations, preferences, access to food, culture, traditions, and the personal decisions we make over time. All your food and beverage choices count. At El Centro, we encourage our patients to make informed food choices and participate in physical activity to improve their overall health. Learn more about El Centro’s Wellness programs.
