Whole Foods Market’s Health Starts Here program provides healthy eating education with the goal of empowering customers, team members and stakeholders to make the best health-supportive, delicious food choices to maximize personal health and vitality. HSH focuses on four pillars of healthy eating: real foods that are whole, fresh, natural, organic, local, seasonal and unprocessed; plant based foods; healthy fats from plant sources such as nuts, seeds and avocados; and nutrient dense foods. Dr. Dan O'Leary will be joining us to provide a more in depth look at holistic nutrition.

He has extensive hours of postgraduate training in nutrition and is currently in the process of becoming a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner.
