Are you eating in front of the television and not remembering how the meal tasted? Are you forgetting if you ate or not?

There are reasons why. In Noemi Custodia-Lora’s presentation, you will learn how to make your eating more mindful, leading to better health, more pleasurable eating, and weight loss. Her presentation will be held on Nov. 19, 2019, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Reading Public Library, 64 Middlesex Ave. This event is free and open to the public.

She created PIÈS Latinos de NECC, an initiative that supports immigrants by validating their professional credentials. She is also a member of the National Skills Coalition on Racial Equality Panel, leads several projects with university partners in the Dominican Republic, and spearheads the NECC Early College Programs.
