60 Plant Ave. Hosts Cooking Demonstration
Another great employee wellness event occurred for our staff, courtesy of Cigna! Our 60 Plant Avenue office in Hauppauge, which operates programs like Chance to Advance and Community Service , held a cooking demonstration with Starlight Tyler, a nutritionist from Starlight Cooking. She taught employees about eating balanced and nourishing meals, and then led them through some recipes. They made a chipotle salad with chicken and made a tasty drink of mint water with strawberries. Yum!
