Green Mountain Care Board member Dr. Karen Hein will be the guest speaker during Brattleboro Memorial Hospital’s next Mediterranean Dinner, taking place on Thursday, May 9 at 5:30 PM in the Brew Barry Conference Center.
Hein, who lives in nearby Jacksonville, Vermont, will discuss heart disease and its impact on women. In addition to her work for the Green Mountain Care Board, Hein is an adjunct professor of Family/Community Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School. In 1987, she founded the first comprehensive HIV/AIDS awareness programs for adolescents in the U.S. and is also the author of AIDS: Trading Fears for Facts: A Guide for Young People (Consumer Reports Books, 1994).
The dinner menu offers a choice of two entrees: roasted cod with tomato, olives, leeks and white wine with whole grain couscous, or braised spring vegetables with crispy tofu. Each entree includes a mixed greens salad with dried cranberries, Vermont chevre and toasted walnuts with a homemade maple vinaigrette, plus homemade fat free local Vermont maple yogurt with local granola for dessert. All made fresh on the premises by BMH Nutrition Services staff.
