Learn to think differently about food at program

Schneck Foundation plans to present a free program about emotional eating and how to think of food differently from 6 to 8 p.m. April 11 at the John Hay Center/Steven’s Museum, 307 E. Market St., Salem.

The speakers will be Dr. Joyce Spurgeon with Schneck Mental Health and Wellness and Dr. Judy Rumschlag with Schneck Family Care Salem.

The two will teach participants how to stop using food for all of the wrong reasons and how to be in charge of the food they eat, when they eat it and how much they eat.

The program is for those who are busy and juggling multiple responsibilities who find reaching for food can be an easy and even an unconscious response to their needs, stress, emotions and exhaustion, according to a news release.

A complimentary dinner will be served beginning at 6 p.m.

To make your reservation, contact Cora Laymon at the Schneck Foundation at 812-524-4244 or [email protected]. Space is limited.
