Digital Literacy Meets Nutritional Health in Auburn Gresham


Digital nutrition is a new initiative within The Greater Auburn Gresham community, in partnership with the University of Illinois Nutrition Extension department, to bridge the Nutritional Divide that exists within Auburn Gresham. Many American men, women and children suffer from obesity, Type II diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and multiple forms of arthritis. Why Is This?

The truth is, our daily dietary consumption has been conditioned due to various reasons, and the only way to prevent and cure the conditions and ailments many people suffer from, is to educate ourselves on food consumption and begin to understand the link between food, health and technology.

If a community can learn the benefits of adopting technology into their lives and accepting it as lifestyle change, via our Smart Communities Initiative, we are positive that people can achieve a similar lifestyle change in their nutritional health.
