Fundraiser: Tesa Kurin's March Trip to the Philippines
- Midwife Clinical Internship
(Registration for the online L.E.A.N. Nutrition Simplified class is now closed; however,
you can make a donation direct to a doula's future to become a midwife by supporting
her internship through GoFundMe donations.)
Jessica David (blog owner) is linking arms with Tesa Kurin (pictured above) to raise money for her clinical internship to the Philippines in March.
Tesa requires $2,500 to make this trip happen. As of 1/13 she has raised $950 and has already purchased her plane ticket. More information on her trip is on GoFundMe.
UPDATE: Registration is now closed for my online LEAN Nutrition Simplified January 2014 class but I encourage you to make a donation to Tesa's cause directly.
I will be able to donate just over $100 to her cause from the 7 paid registrations.
If you'd like to find out how your wellness cause or non profit can qualify for a fundraiser in 2014 - contact me!
Jessica will donate 25% of the proceeds in exchange for paid participants in her online LEAN Nutrition Simplified class to an approved wellness cause or non profit.
WHAT is L.E.A.N.?
Dr. Bill Sears (author, speaker and pediatrician and Stage IV colon cancer survivor) is the creator of the L.E.A.N. program. Dr. Sears has written over 40 books and titles include: The Baby Book, The Family Nutrition Book, The Vaccine Book, Healthiest Kid on the Block, etc. He created L.E.A.N. to teach nutrition that is backed by science.
L.E.A.N. stands for the 4 pillars of health which is taught by a Certified Health Coach (me, Jessica) from the Sears Wellness Institute:
-Lifestyle (Eating / Living well isn't a diet, fad, or trend - it becomes part of you / your lifestyle.)
-Exercise (Get moving, learn ways to incorporate exercise / fitness into your lifestyle.)
-Attitude (It's important to keep a positive attitude on your journey to wellness. Having an open mind is key.)
-Nutrition (What we eat (or don't eat) affects our wellness.)
WHO is a good fit for this online workshop?
The L.E.A.N. Start class is best for families with children, care takers of children (schools, daycares, churches, etc.), medical professionals who oversee children and those who are wanting to start a family; however, the material can be used by anyone because it’s easy to learn and implement.
Each session will include a healthy recipe you can easily duplicate at home, as well as hands-on-learning experiences to help you be a savvy shopper getting the most nutrition for your money.
The participants will LEARN valuable strategies that will help them:
+ Experience improvements in overall health;
+ Have fewer sick days and less time away from work or school;
+ Reduce medical expenses;
+ Find a weight control plan that actually works;
+ Experience more active and truly energetic lives!
WHY choose my online Nutrition Simplified workshop?

Criteria: Must be able to read, speak and write in English. Must have internet access. There are no refunds. The online workshop runs for 6 weeks. I teach one session a week. It is somewhat self paced but in order to stay on topic, you'll be required to login and actively participate in the forums at least twice a week. I will be available to you for questions and online and offline discussions at no extra charge during the six weeks. Once the online workshop is over, you'll have up to 3 weeks to go back and review any information that was covered then the classroom will expire.
