Stepping Up Your Nutrition (SUYN) 

SUNY logo

As we age, our risk for poor nutrition, falling, and problems with concentration tend to increase.  

If you have two or more chronic conditions, such as arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, etc., you may be at increased risk of poor nutrition. Inadequate nutrition and hydration can cause muscle loss and dizziness and increase your risk of falling.

The good news is that a Stepping Up Your Nutrition class can help you better understand why you are at risk and can provide practical tips to help you improve your nutrition and hydration status and reduce your risk of falls.


To find out if a class is being held near you, check out the SUYN calendar.
