Celebrating Fruits & Veggies

Did you know that September is Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month? At Concorde, we want all of our students, faculty and associates to be healthy. You need all the energy you can get when working hard and studying in a health care program and pursuing a health care career. Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month is all about focusing attention on eating MORE fruits and vegetables. It’s about health care awareness.

More than 90 percent of both adults and children don’t eat the amount of fruits and vegetables recommended by the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the MyPlate nutrition guide. Fruits & Veggies – More Matters says add one more helping of fruits and veggies at every meal. Try something new. Educate yourself. Teach the kids. Try a new recipe. It suggests filling half your plate with fruits and veggies at every meal. All forms – fresh, frozen, canned, dried and 100 percent juice count!

Again, it’s all about health care awareness. To help with that health care awareness, here is an infographic with a lot of great information about the benefits of adding fruits and vegetables to your daily caloric intake.

“I have taken the MA program and the LVN program. Concorde is a wonderful school. There is a difference between passion and a paycheck, and most of my instructors had a passion for what they do. The program was challenging but well worth it. I love this college!”

Kontessa Brown | Dental Assisting Graduate

“I think it’s an amazing school. When I sat down for boards, I felt more than adequately prepared. If you put the work in, your success is almost guaranteed.”

Jamie Troccoli | Medical Assistant graduate

“I am eternally grateful to Dr. Lu-Ping Gamble at the Garden Grove campus. They not only lit a spark, they lit a torch in my heart that shall burn forever! My education changed my life and has had a huge positive impact on the person I am today.”

James Harkins | Nursing Graduate

“What I liked about Concorde was that there was nothing flashy. They were very up front, very simple, answered all my questions. They were more concerned with my education than tuition.”

Michelle Cardona | Dental Assistant graduate

“Literally a year-and-a-half ago, I was struggling to make ends meet and barely surviving. Now I have a career, make good money, and life gets better every day. I have recommended friends and family go to Concorde, because in as few as nine months, your life can completely change for the better.”
