Program Recognitions

The Healing Foods Project at McAuley House would like to thank those who helped make the program a reality. We are particularly grateful to Mary M. Flynn, PhD, RD, L.D.N., research dietitian at The Miriam Hospital in Providence and Associate Professor of Medicine, Clinical at Brown University; Don Wolfe, Executive Director of McAuley Ministries; and Rev. Mary Margaret Earl, former Associate Director of McAuley Ministries. Without their initiative, collaboration and hard work, this program would not have come to fruition.
