National Nutrition Month

Eating healthy no matter your income, schedule, or eating habits


Getting good nutrition isn’t complicated. There are tips and tricks on how to integrate fresh foods into your diet. And as part of celebrating National Nutrition Month in March, the Health Department of Northwest Michigan (HDNW) and the Northern Michigan Public Health Alliance encourages residents to add more fresh fruits and vegetables to their favorite recipes as an easy way to improve nutrition.


  • People with healthy eating patterns are likely to live longer and are at lower risk for serious chronic health problems compared to individuals with unhealthy eating habits.
  • Poor nutrition can contribute to many debilitating diseases, including obesity, heart disease, and some cancers.
  • Less than one out of every 10 adults and children eat the daily recommended amount of vegetables, four to five a day.
  • Four out of 10 children and fewer than one out of 7 adults eat the daily recommended amount of fruits, four to five a day.


Fruits and vegetables are essential to a healthy diet because they provide vitamins and minerals for our bodies. Low levels of vitamin/mineral intake can lead to mental impairment and central nervous system defects in infants.


“Eating healthy can easily be a way of life that involves eating what you like and making it fun,” says Judi Marlin, HDNW Registered Nutritionist. “One example is to create a board of lean meats, cheeses, nuts, fruits, vegetables, and whole grain breads and let everyone eat family style rather than serve sandwiches and chips. We have plenty of ideas and recipes to share.”


More tips and tricks include:

  • Cut up vegetables to be small and add them to your favorite recipes,
  • Buy and eat frozen when fresh isn’t available,
  • Use coupons and sales to reduce the cost of fresh foods, and
  • Look for healthier options even when you’re on the go at convenience stores and gas stations, such as apples, boiled eggs, cheese, and nuts.


Premium Nutrition for Baby

Breastfeeding can help protect against childhood illnesses, including ear and respiratory infections, asthma, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). HDNW has Breastfeeding Peer Counselors available to help you on this nutritional journey. Please call us locally at 800-432-4121 for breastfeeding information and to talk with a Peer Counselor.


For more healthy nutrition facts, watch Judi Marlin on 9&10 New’s lifestyle program, The Four, at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, or visit eatright.org

New Chief Executive Officer at Networks Northwest 

The Networks Northwest Board has approved the hiring of Janie McNabb as the new Chief Executive Officer at Networks Northwest. The board met February 29 and voted to accept the recommendation of the Networks Northwest Executive Committee that McNabb be hired for the leadership position at the organization which provides workforce, business, and community development services in the 10 counties of northwest Lower Michigan. McNabb has accepted the position.

“We are excited to have Janie rejoin Networks Northwest as the next CEO,” said Nicole Sulak, Chair of the Networks Northwest Board. “She has the previous experience with the organization and strategic vision to lead Networks Northwest and the region forward.” 


McNabb comes to Networks Northwest from serving as a workforce and strategy consultant around the state, primarily in affiliation with Strategic Policy Consultants. Prior to that, she spent 18 years in various roles at Networks Northwest, including Northwest Michigan Works! Chief Operating Officer. McNabb’s diverse experience includes workforce programs and policy, organizational culture, communications, and public relations. She holds a Master of Arts in Organizational Development and a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature.


“I am honored to have been chosen and to serve as the next Chief Executive Officer of Networks Northwest,” said McNabb. “I am eager to engage with partners and the community to connect people with the high-quality and much-needed programming that Networks Northwest provides.”


McNabb is scheduled to begin working as CEO on March 11. She replaces former Networks Northwest CEO, Terry Vandercook.

NCMC Lifelong Learning Club is unveiling a new style of learning event!

The NCMC Lifelong Learning Club is experimenting with a newly designed enrichment class combining a lecture, an assigned bestselling book and a live performance.

All of the elements of this event surround the true story of "The Radium Girls". In the early 1900's radium is a miracle cure, Madame Curie is an international celebrity and luminous watches are the latest rage—until the young women who paint the watches begin to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Most of the young women become seriously ill or worse. Very unusual for their time, these women rightfully stand up for themselves in court, suing their employers for occupational hazards and endangering their workers.  

This class is scheduled for April 4th and April 13th. For more on this new class click here.

Have a business or member success story? We want to hear it! Hitting a growth landmark, meeting a personal or financial business goal, adding to your team, being awarded industry certifications or recognition's… we want to share that accomplishment!


North Central Michigan College’s winter enrollment increased by 5.7% over Winter 2023, with growth in both new and returning students.

NCMC’s Winter 2024 enrollment is 1,755 students, with the number of new students increasing by 50%. The college’s fall-to-winter persistence rate (students enrolled during Fall 2023 who re-enrolled for Winter 2024) increased by 16%.

Erin Sonneveldt, North Central’s associate dean of Institutional Research and Assessment, also noted the following:

·       Full-time Enrollment Equivalency (FTE), which aggregates part-time students into full-time students, increased by 10%.

·       The number of Spring 2023 high school graduates from the college’s service area that enrolled in winter courses increased by 11%.

Corey Lansing, director of Admission, cited a campuswide focus on belonging and student success as critical to the college’s enrollment success.

 “One of the benefits of a smaller campus is our family atmosphere, and that means coming together to help our students when they need it,” Lansing said. “Team members across the college work to identify students who might need extra support, then connect with them with campus and community resources.”

Such resources include North Central’s Student Emergency Fund, which provides financial assistance to students who have exhausted all other resources and have nowhere else to turn for unexpected financial hardships including unforeseen medical expenses, housing crises, and car trouble.

“Many times, being able to afford an unexpected car repair can mean the difference between a student finishing a degree or withdrawing with just a semester left until graduation,” Lansing said.

Another resource, the Campus Cupboard student food pantry, expanded its services last fall to include a once-weekly, discreet self-shopping experience, when students can acquire fresh fruits and vegetables, canned goods, dairy products, and personal hygiene items.

“The success of both these resources depends on the generosity of our donors and our faculty and staff,” said Chelsea Platte, NCMC Foundation executive director and vice president for Advancement. “Time and again, when we’ve approached them with an opportunity to support our students, they have enthusiastically obliged.”

While the college celebrates enrollment growth, Lansing expects there will be an even sharper focus on retaining North Central’s large population of dual and concurrently enrolled students so they might complete an associate degree prior to transferring to a four-year university.

“We know our dual and concurrent students understand the benefits of getting a head start on their college credits,” Lansing said. “We also know they are becoming more financially savvy. As we expand our academic offerings and communicate our value to them, we believe they will appreciate even more the benefits of saving on their first two years of a bachelor’s degree.”

In addition to its traditional students, North Central serves more than 100 learners each year through its Fast Track career programs, and more than 5,000 individuals via its Lifelong Learning offerings. 

Registration for North Central’s Fall 2024 semester opens on March 13. Summer registration is open now. Visit www.ncmich.edu to learn more.

Charlevoix Urgent Care Transitions to Walk-in Clinic

Providing more affordable, convenient options for Charlevoix and surrounding communities

Munson Healthcare Charlevoix Hospital announced the transition of the Charlevoix Urgent Care to a new Walk-In Clinic as part of the Regional Care Transformation Plan to provide more patient-centric care.

On March 1, the Charlevoix Urgent Care will discontinue services in the Charlevoix Emergency Department and will begin the transition to the new Walk-in Clinic that will open on April 1, 2024. The Walk-in Clinic will be conveniently located at 14705 W. Upright St., Building D in Charlevoix. The Charlevoix Emergency Department will continue to offer 24/7 care every day of the year.

The new Charlevoix Walk-in Clinic will prioritize walk-in availability and same-day call-ahead appointments, ensuring timely access to care for patients. Additionally, the Walk-in Clinic will offer more affordable options for the community, with a patient’s insurance billed as a specialist visit to support cost-effective healthcare delivery.

“We are excited to offer this standalone walk-in clinic separate from the emergency department. In the existing Urgent Care framework, the level of patient care can unexpectedly shift from urgent to emergency services based on clinical criteria. This has resulted in increased expenses for our valued patients," stated Joanne Schroeder, President of MHC Charlevoix Hospital. "Acknowledging this concern, we are pleased to announce that our new Walk-in Clinic model will effectively tackle this issue."

Patients can expect the same level of care provided by the current urgent care, including point-of-care lab testing and necessary imaging services, which will be conveniently accessible at Charlevoix Hospital, located just across the street.

During the transition period from March 1 to March 31, community members are encouraged to utilize existing alternative healthcare resources, including:

·       Charlevoix Emergency Department for emergencies.

·       Munson Healthcare’s Ask-A-Nurse Line, 231-935-0951. This is a free service connecting the community to a registered nurse to talk about any symptoms or concerns. It is available 24/7.

·       Munson Virtual Urgent Care | Daily; 7 am – 7 pm | MunsonHealthcare.org/VirtualUrgentCare

·       Primary Care Provider | Don’t have one? MHC Charlevoix Primary Care is accepting new patients, call 231-547-6554, or visit MunsonHealthcare.org/Find-A-Doctor
