We want to bridge the gap between one of the oldest forms of medicine and health philosophy to current, applicable nutrition education/intervention in a holistic view; what is Ayurveda and what impact does Ayurveda have on nutrition and health today?

Learn about the history and culture of Ayurveda while also practicing some Ayurvedic exercises with us! Also, in times of overbearing waste, we’re letting you declutter and clean out your unappreciated clothing that’s been sitting in your closet--unused, unworn, and lonely. Bring any clothing you’d like to donate to our event; hopefully it can find a new home and you also discover a new article. All non swapped clothes will be donated to the mission. Reusing and recycling, and networking at its best.

Jeannie Ng, MPH, CDN, RDN is a holistic wellness dietitian nutritionist and founder of Yin Yang Glow which focuses on balanced and sustainable lifestyles for optimum health of each individual, as a community and the environment on a global scale. She wants to see that everyone has equal access to education and resources in order to live a happy and healthy life. As the co chair of the GNYDA's Hunger and Environmental Nutrition Special Interest Group, Jeannie's goal is to establish a community of dietitians to advocate and support the accessability of safe, clean, sustainable food and water for everyone in the world.
