The Dover Public Library, OSU Extension, and Union Hospital will present the second of a three-part series focused on the health benefits of in-season produce. The ?Bountiful Blueberry? will be featured July 19 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Dover Library.
?Fresh, local produce tastes great and is packed with important nutrients our bodies need,? said Pam Dummermuth, Coordinator of Community Health Outreach at Union Hospital. ?Blueberries are rich in antioxidants and boost the body?s natural immunity.?
Those attending this program will make and enjoy a blueberry treat and receive a recipe card.
?We encourage folks to take advantage of having easy access to locally grown produce.? she added. ?Last month we featured the ?Super Strawberry? and we really had a nice response from the community.?
The ?Bountiful Blueberry? program is free, but registration is requested. Register on-line at: unionhospital.org, under ?Health Events? or call the UH community relations office at (330) 602-0778.
