Marilyn Holmes, manager of Health Plus and a registered dietician and licensed nutritionist, will discuss “Nutrition for a Healthy Start” as part of the Babies and You series offered by Health Plus. Holmes’ talk will be from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, in Medical Center North, Room C2209.

Babies and You is a worksite prenatal health promotion program for all Vanderbilt employees, their spouses and dependents. The program encourages early and consistent prenatal care and provides monthly educational opportunities on various topics.

A $50 incentive is offered to those who register for Babies and You in their first trimester, attend at least three of the monthly classes, and go to all prenatal provider visits. After the baby’s birth, parents will qualify for an optional home visit by a registered nurse. The service is available for Davidson and surrounding counties.

The Nov. 21 event is free, and no registration is required.
