Shell Point Retirement Community’s Hospitality Services Department received an award for Overall Excellence during National Nutrition Month 2013 from the Florida Dietetic Association.
Assistant Director of Hospitality Services Linda Rakos, RD, LD and Nutrition Services Manager Sandi Brower, DTR, accepted the award on behalf of Shell Point at the association’s annual symposium held this month in Orlando.
“This award confirms our team’s dedication to serving the residents of Shell Point,” said Hospitality Services Director Al Slickers. “We are continually challenging ourselves to engage our residents with useful information about how dining choices affect health.”
The Hospitality Services team organized a series of activities and presentations for residents during nutrition month and highlighted the healthy foods featured on the menu. Throughout the year, Rakos presents nutrition topics at the community’s “Health Connection” seminars, and she is a regular contributor to the community’s monthly Shell Point Life magazine and neighborhood newsletters.
