On Jan. 8, 2018 The Delta Eta Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. held a health seminar for the public called “Get Fit and Stay Fit”. The seminar took place at the African American Research Library and Culture Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
There was a panel of experts which included Dr. Walter Campbell, (Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine), Demetrice Morrison, (Registered Dietician), and Beverly Glover, of Beverly’s Organic Natural Juices. Each panel guest offered their expertise on how we could enhance and even change our health for good simply by the choices we make with the foods and drinks we consume.
Dr. Campbell and Dietician Demetrice Morrison talked about how what we consume can change the prognosis on many healthcare issues and how healthy eating and living could provide opportunities to heal our bodies naturally when facing a crisis, even helping to avoid disease altogether in some cases.
Ms. Glover furthered the discussion by sharing many different types of natural juices and alkaline waters to get our bodies in check. At the end of the sessions, there was a wide array of healthy juices and water for each participant to sample.
In addition, the sorority provided several healthy snacks for guests that included fruit cups, nuts, healthy chips, and water.
These items were provided along with a “Get Fit” canvas bag for each participant and a free FitBit watch for the first 50 people to arrive. The event was an all-around success and action packed. Eventhough the doors have closed for this year’s event, The Fort Lauderdale Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority awaits the opportunity to enlighten the community a-gain next year as a part of its MLK health intiaitive to “Get Fit and Stay Fi
