It’s the first day of national Health and Wellness Coach Week and to kick it off, Ivanka Trump’s former health coach is coming to Capitol Hill.
Maria Marlowe writes a monthly food column and is the founder of an integrative nutrition health coaching practice in New York. She will be joined by other health leaders for a congressional briefing at noon in the Capitol Visitor Center, Room 201AB.
It’s also Senate Healthy Heart Day, and there are events planned from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Dirksen 106.
No registration is necessary. There will be glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure screenings and well as Pilates and kickboxing demonstrations.
