"As a registered nurse,  I was one of the educators of the Empowering Healthy Families at Mount Zion Baptist Church of Spotsylvania.  This program reminded me to not only make healthier food choices, but to increase my physical activity.  This program was valuable to the students/participants and the educators!  Well done!"  -Geri Ford, Mt. Zion Baptist Church
