OSF St. Anthony Medical Center offers nutrition class for sports participants

From press release

If you are an athlete or an active participant in various sports, your nutrition needs may not be the same as those of someone who is less active. The registered dietitians at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center can help sports participants meet their unique nutritional needs.

Sports Nutrition

will be offered from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 29, at the OSF  Saint Anthony Center for Health, 5510 E. State St., Room 154. The fee is $20.

Participants will learn how altering their eating  habits can improve athletic performance.

The class includes a review of how nutrition needs are different for athletes than for the general population. The dietitian will also discuss some of the popular supplements.

Registration by calling (815) 395-5025 is required. Space is limited to allow for discussion and questions and to ensure that sufficient materials are available.
