CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 28- April 3, 1997 - 27 Master food educator program opens in Sussex April 8 that these are just a few of the top- ics she learned about by being a member of the Master Food Edu- cator program. She said that she not only be- came more knowledgeable re- garding health and nutrition, she also made new friends and met many nice people. 'The aspect of teaching and in- forming members of my commu- nity has been rewarding," Sames said. Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obe- sity are very costly and physically disabling. Sames said that the goal of living should be that of having a "Quality Life," so prevention of these diseases is a priority to everyone. The food educator found the food safety information particu- larly eye-opening. She said that, so many times, food-borne illness gets self-diagnosed as an intesti- nal flu. She said most symptoms of both are very similar, so it is very important that preventive measures reach as many individu- als as possible. "It's so important that you do basic things like learn the 'safe' food temperatures of all foods!" she said. The upcoming training sessions will include such topics as the fol- lowing: Basic nutrition Food safety Food selection Working with the public Up-dated research-based in- formation regarding all topics After completing the training course, participants who are also going to volunteer as Master Food Educators share the information they have learned with local orga- nizations, schools and the general public at health fairs, the state fair and other local events. "If you are interested in helping people, or just want to become Red Cross responds for disaster relief American Red Cross disaster relief workers have been assisting in rescue and relief operations in flooded areas of the Ohio Valley, Wash- ington State and the Midwest and Southern states.

Training sessions of the Master Food Educator program are scheduled for April 8-May 8, and applications are being accepted at the University of Delaware Coop- erative Extension Service, Georgetown.

Others who only want to take the pro- gram for their own knowledge pay afee. Carolyn Sames is a trained Mas- ter Food Educator who has taken her knowledge and skills into the community. Sames said, "The purpose of the program is to assist home eco- nomic agents in providing infor- mation on good nutrition, food safety and food preservation to the community. This is done by the Master Food Educators going to schools, senior centers, health fairs and the Delaware State Fair. "Do most people know that heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity can be prevented by the foods we eat? Or that food- borne illnesses (food poisoning) are caused by foods that are not kept at the proper temperature?"
