Looking for something romantic to do with your loved one this Valentine’s Day? In celebration of National Donor Day, join Donor Network West on February 11th at 6 pm PT for a virtual cooking demonstration featuring celebrity chef Nikki Shaw.
Chef Shaw will create a romantic (and heart-healthy) soul food dinner for two and will be joined by heart transplant recipient Frank Green III and his wife Bashara. The recipes will be provided in advance so attendees can cook alongside chef Nikki and make a savory, healthy soul food meal that is good for your, heart and soul!
February also marks the celebration of Black History Month and American Heart Month. Did you know the prevalence of high blood pressure in Black Americans is the highest in the world? High blood pressure, in addition to diabetes, obesity and chronic kidney disease, are all common in Black Americans and result in high rates of heart failure within the Black community, leading to the need for an organ transplant. The great news is that you can help reduce your risk of these diseases by taking care of your personal health. There is no better time than now to start eating healthier. So join us and be prepared to learn about the power of soul food cooking and how to make fabulous food that is also heart-healthy.
