WOODSTOCK – Chef and coach Chris Atwater will share his expertise and answer questions about healthier eating at the monthly Dynamic Living Series at 7 p.m. March 20 at the Northwest Healthcare Center, 800 E. South St., Woodstock.

Atwater started working in the restaurant industry when he was 15. “While he spent many years preparing food for others, for the past several years, he has been involved with nutrition as a way to significantly change your life,” said Dr.James Kearns, clinic director.

Among the questions Atwater will address are: Is organic really better? What diets really work and which ones to avoid? Does coffee or red wine really help with weight loss?  He will also have time to respond to questions from those in attendance.

The program is free and open to the public. Pre-register by calling 815 337-7109. For more information, visit www.nwhealthcarecenter.com.
