Want to experience the joy of Juneteenth this summer with some amazing, healthy recipes?

The National Council of Negro Women (NCNW)-Greater Boston Section and Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy have partnered to develop FRESH& – a monthly webinar series that will explore a range of nutrition topics. FRESH& is designed to engage Black women in discussing their diet and nutrition in a culturally competent, celebratory way. Each month attendees will explore topics like how to make healthy, culturally relevant meals, boost their immune systems through diet, and coping with stress through food.

This month, we are excited to present FRESH& Joyful Cooking: Juneteenth Recipes with Janna Adkins on Thursday, May 19, 6:00PM-7:00PM EST. During the event, we will review simple changes to some of Janna’s favorite recipes that can have a big impact on health. Don’t worry about skipping out on your favorites. FRESH& has you covered so you can experience the joy of Juneteenth this summer!

Janna earned her MS in Nutrition Interventions, Communication, and Behavior Change in May 2021 and is a current doctoral student at Tufts FSNSP. She studies how to make nutritious food accessible to everyone. During her studies at Tufts FSNSP, Janna has learned the importance of social justice and food equity, and she hopes to apply these concepts to her work. She is interested in developing community nutrition interventions and building social capital. She believes that food is a universal language with the power to connect us all. In her free time, she likes to ride her bike and go on long nature walks. Janna is excited to exchange her nutrition knowledge with everyone who seeks to lead healthier lives.
