Meeting Time and Location: 

2:00-3:00pm Webinar


The restaurant environment is filled with high sodium foods.  Giving consumers information that enables them to choose lower-sodium options can help reduce the number of Americans living with hypertension and the increased risk of heart disease and stroke they face.

Since 2016, the New York City Board of Health has required sodium warnings next to menu items containing the recommended daily sodium limit (2,300 milligrams).  Recently, similar legislation was introduced by the Philadelphia City Council. Join us to learn more about the importance of sodium warnings and current research about their effectiveness.  You’ll also walk away with the tools you need to introduce sodium warnings in your community.
