CHESTERTON | Adults interested in learning more about how foods affect bodies in different ways are invited to register for Eating Well for Living Healthy: Foods that Fight Inflammation.

The program will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. June 5 at Westchester Public Library in the Bertha Wood meeting room at Thomas Library, 200 W. Indiana Ave.

Registered Dietetic Technician Gia DeMartinis-Novak will lead the class, which is a repeat of the previous Foods that Fight Inflammation program. Registration is necessary. Sign up at the reference desk or call (219) 926-7696.

Chronic inflammation feeds a variety of diseases such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, heart disease and COPD. Choosing to eat the right foods can benefit the body and assist in the management of chronic inflammation. DeMartinis-Novak will discuss which foods are the right foods.

Other sessions from the recent Eating Well for Healthy Living will be repeated later in the year. Dates and programs will be announced.

DeMartinis-Novak earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Trinity Christian College with a Biology major and a minor in Chemistry. She also earned an Associate’s Degree in Applied Nutrition from Central Arizona College. She has worked at Kraft General Foods performing vitamin analysis of foods. She also served a dietetic internship at Methodist Hospitals in Gary and Merrillville and Methodist Cardiac Rehab Center and Outpatient Diabetes Clinic, and worked at Methodist Hospital in Merrillville.
