WLEX Channel 18 Features Wellness Cooking in Partnership with College of Health Sciences' Maria Boosalis, UK HealthCare


Lexington, Ky. – November, 2008

UK HealthCare recently announced a partnership with Susie Quick (you can see her show, "Healthy Cooking 101", Tuesdays at 12:30) to bring you this series of video recipes designed especially for folks with special dietary needs due to diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.

When you have specific health conditions, such as those listed above, your food choices become very important components in helping you manage some of the effects of these conditions. It is for this reason that UK HealthCare is working with Susie to develop the recipes you’ll see on this site.

Susie’s recipes are quick and easy to make, using fresh, natural ingredients that can be found at any good grocery store.

UK HealthCare is proud to be Central Kentucky’s health information resource. We encourage you to explore the rest of this Web site to learn more about diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. If you have questions about a particular condition or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at 1-800-333-8874 or in Lexington 257-1000.

All the recipes on this site were developed by Susie Quick with consultation and nutritional analysis provided by UK Nutritionist, Maria Boosalis, Ph,D.
