GRUNDY CENTER - If your doctor has told you that your blood pressure is higher than it should be, 'Just What the Dr. Ordered' may be for you. The Monday, March 21st class focuses on controlling blood pressure through nutrition and will be offered by Grundy County Memorial Hospital at 5:30 7:00 p.m. The class is free of charge, and is offered as part of a series of education events that teach people how changes in cooking and eating habits can improve chronic health conditions.

High blood pressure affects more than 70 million Americans, says GCMH dietitian Wendy Brewer, RDN, LD, who teaches the course. The condition is linked to increased risk of heart problems, so controlling it is especially important, says Brewer. "Simple tips to use while you grocery shop, while you cook, and when you dine out can help you manage your blood pressure and perhaps even prevent the need for medication," says Brewer.

Sign up for the class by phoning or emailing Brewer at 319-824-4127 or, or enrolling on the hospital website, The class is held in the hospital's Education Room. GCMH is located at 201 East J Avenue in Grundy Center. Use Entrance #3 on the hospital's west side.
