April 4, 2018 – Dobies Healthcare Group and Natural Grocers returned to Cristo Rey Kansas City today to educate high school students on healthy food choices. The Apple a Day program, which launched last year, pairs corporate sponsors with schools to provide apples and nutrition education to local children, teens and families.

The event kicked off Cristo Rey’s Health Day, when students can participate in a variety of interactive programs related to health, fitness, safety and wellness. Each student received a fresh, organic apple and a nutritional flyer from the Dobies Healthcare Group team before listening to a presentation on healthy eating by Brooke Seiz, Nutritional Health Coach at Natural Grocers. Seiz, a graduate of the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, CO, is board certified by the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and currently pursuing additional training in functional medicine and counseling psychology.
