Perhaps you know someone who can benefit from our AIDS Insurance Continuation Program (AICP) here at The Wellness Center of South Florida where we can assist them with paying up to $750 per month toward their  private health insurance (at their job, group, COBRA & individual policy premiums) if they are HIV+ / AIDS diagnosed and live in Florida.  Also individuals may not know that we can assist those who meet criteria toward paying their health insurance deductibles and co-payments.  If any questions about AICP assistance from WCSF, please call Jerry at 954-568-0152

The Wellness Center hosted a dinner at Gelati Martini (2037 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors) on Monday Night. The speaker was Nutritionist Cade Fields-Gardner and sponsored by EMD Serono. The topic was Nutrition for HIV positive people. One of the questions asked was does nutrition affect the abdominal fat buildup. The answer was that insulin spikes contribute to abdominal fat, so the way to combat this is to avoid insulin spikes. Less sugar and carbohydrates, smaller but more meals, and balanced meals. Fiber and fat counteracts the insulin spikes and therefore should be part of those balanced meals.

Guy is the owner of this wonderful restaurant and his specialty are the gelato desserts.

Dinner was squash and apple soup, salad, broccoli mousse, chicken or beef and gelato dessert served in a martini glass. Tres chic, n’est pas?

We met some new friends and caught up with old some old friends.

After dinner, we thanked Heidi for inviting us to this seminar and fabulous meal.
