WAYNE, N.J., Aug. 29, 2014 – September, which is National Cholesterol Education Month, is a good time to learn about food and lifestyle choices that help people of all ages – from seniors to young Americans and children – prevent or manage high cholesterol. Throughout the month, ShopRite of Wayne, an Inserra Supermarkets store, will host a wellness series led by Natalie Nachef, M.S., R.D., in-store registered dietitian.
