Learn more about nutrition and health


By Tamalynn Kirby/School District 51 Nutritionist


Do you want to start a walking program or a healthy weight plan? Do you need more information about diseases or a health condition?

Help is just a mouse click or phone call away!

The following is a list of organizations with helpful information. Some have local chapters in communities nationwide:

American Cancer Society

American Dental Association 

American Diabetes Association 

American Dietetic Association 

American Heart Association 

America on the Move 

March of Dimes 

National Osteoporosis Foundation 

The holidays are over, of course, but it’s still a good reminder: You can eat most of the foods you want, but do so in moderation.

Tamalynn Kirby is a nutritionist for School District 51.
