Parkview Mobile Nurses Celebrate Kale Day with Two Events

When: 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., Oct. 2

Where: Riverwalk and Pueblo West Library

(Pueblo, CO, Sept. 19, 2019) –  Parkview Medical Center’s Mobile Nurses will spend a day in October celebrating a plant with centuries of history.

October 2 is National Kale Day and the nurses will be working the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk of Pueblo that morning to introduce folks to a unique way to enjoy the leafy vegetable: Kale smoothies.

The nurses will be stationed along Veteran’s Bridge from 9 to 9:30 a.m., offering samples. But the focus on healthy eating won’t end there.

The nurses also will be hosting Food for Thought, a light luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. at the Pueblo West Library, 298 S. Joe Martinez Blvd., that will feature a presentation from Dr. Brian Dodds. That event will also feature kale smoothies but a kale salad also will be available, as will recipes featuring the cabbage varietal.

The lunch presentation is free but registration is required. To do so, call 584-7319.
