Dine with a Doc is a free community-based program that welcomes the local senior public to hear an educational topic and ask questions while enjoying a complimentary lunch. This month’s speaker is registered dietician Hannah Cline.
Cline was born and raised in Putnam County. She graduated from South Putnam High School in 2010 and has a bachelor’s degree from Indiana State University in dietetics.
Her first position after college was with WIC, a supplemental nutrition program, in Terre Haute doing nutrition assessments and education for women, infants and children. Since June 2015, she has worked at Putnam County Hospital as the dietitian in the clinical and community wellness capacity.
Pursuing a career as a dietitian was not a tough choice for Cline. She spent the better part of her childhood and adolescence struggling with weight. Her junior year of high school she wrote her own diet and exercise plan and lost 65 pounds. After that, she knew she wanted to help people achieve that same goal and better their life.
The lunch will be courtesy of Home Instead Senior Care.
Various health care providers will share information about their services and provide door prizes for participants to win.
Hickory Creek at Sunset will offer a complimentary wellness clinic (blood pressure screening).
