Optimal wellness through nutrition

Cancer Wellness Workshop Series

The “Optimal Wellness Through Nutrition: Living an Anti-Inflammatory Lifestyle” workshop will be held Feb. 23, from 8:50 am to 1:30 pm.

Sponsored and produced by the non-profit organization Blueprints of Hope, the workshop will be held at Durango Public Library, 1900 E. 3rd Avenue, Durango. This is the third of three wellness workshops made possible in part by a grant from the Colorado Cancer Coalition, Colorado Cancer Fund, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and most-recently the LPEA Round-Up Foundation.

Research continually shows links between food, health, and disease. We know there are foods that may decrease our wellness, as well as foods that nourish and protect. Join us to learn how food and lifestyle choices have the capacity to fight inflammation and support overall health.

The workshop features Dr. Sarah Goodpastor, obesity and weight management physician from Mercy Internal Medicine, Susie Young, oncology certified registered dietician, and Missy Rodey, senior health advisor and former nutrition educator.

The event is open to the general public, as well as cancer patients, survivors, their friends, caregivers, and health care professionals. Cost is $10 per person, which includes lunch catered by BLOOM Café. Space is limited, so please register online at, or call 970-403-3711.

Blueprints of Hope is a registered 501 (c)3 nonprofit corporation, based in Durango, Colo., dedicated to providing community-based oncology nurse navigation, education, advocacy, and supportive care programs for cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and health care providers in Southwest Colorado. The goals of these workshops are to promote healthy lifestyle choices everyone can use that may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.
