nutrition day

“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”
- Ann Wigmore

Registered Dietitian Day was created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) to increase the awareness of registered dietitians as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and to recognize RDs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.

USS Arlington

  
  
  
  

On April 6, 2013 the United States Navy will commission the eighth of a new class of amphibious landing ships.  This new ship, one of three commemorating the events of September 11, 2001, will be named the USS ARLINGTON and it will contain a unique feature; a Tribute Room memorializing the heroism of our first responders on 9/11.

The ship honors the memories of those killed or injured in the terrorist attack on the Pentagon that day, and recognizes the heroism of Arlington’s first responders.  The ship’s on-board Tribute Room, which features steel girders from the Pentagon, will tell Arlington’s story as it sails around the world for the next fifty years.

Virginia Hospital Center was an integral part of the Arlington County first responder network and will be featured in the Tribute Room and in the memorial framed USS ARLINGTON print.
