Join us! TAM of Nevada to Participate in Flavors of the Heart Culinary Event

foth2Trying to make heart-healthy choices? Dining out doesn’t have to be difficult!

As you learned in TAM® training, drinking too much alcohol can lead to high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, and other health conditions. Learn more about alcohol and heart health at the AHA website, by taking an online TAM® course, or by joining us later this month at a special event.

As food and beverage professionals, TAM® students have a unique opportunity to help promote heart healthy food and beverage choices in their daily work. Restaurateurs and kitchen staff can develop healthy dishes to wow guests with discerning tastes. Servers can make recommendations about heathy menu items. And as individuals, we can all benefit from making smart choices in our own lives. What’s not to like about that? To promote these choices, attend the always exciting Flavors of the Heart event later this month. Join us for great education, great food, great tunes, and great company!

We’re pleased to announce that TAM® of Nevada staff volunteers will be on site to assist in the American Heart and Stroke Association’s Flavors of the Heart event in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 17th.

The purpose of this event is fourfold:

  • To celebrate the wonderful Teens Cook with Heart Program in Las Vegas
  • To educate the community on how to make healthier choices when eating out
  • To motivate restaurants to create heart healthy dishes (and promote those dishes at this event)
  • To increase awareness of the American Heart and Stroke Association and its mission

If you’ll be attending this fantastic event, TAM® Manager Sherry Cummings and additional TAM® Staff members will be on site and participating. Please stop by and say hello! Hearing directly from the community about what issues are important to them helps us to provide the best training possible for our students.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, September 17th. The event will include over 25 participating restaurants, food and wine tasting, music and special guests, and we’d love to see you there! Also be sure to stay up to date about this and other activities and events TAM® of Nevada will be attending by connecting with us on Facebook.

Here at the TAM ® of Nevada office, we’re keeping busy with our regularly scheduled online and classroom courses, along with a handful of other special events. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new and exciting:

  1. A Spanish Class will be offered on Thursday, October 17th at 9:00am at our office in Las Vegas. For Spanish speakers who wish to complete their TAM® class in their native language, you may register online or register at the door prior to the start of class. Class will be offered at a cost of $35, and we will continue to offer a Spanish class once a month in the future.
  2. Exam proctoring is now available in Laughlin for our online TAM® Card students. Please visit us on Thursdays at the Laughlin Chamber of Commerce building any time between 8:30am-12:00pm.

  4. In the coming weeks, we’ll once again be kicking off our annual canned food drive to benefit the Three Square food bank here in Las Vegas.

If you’re coming to our Training Center to complete your TAM® Training in the month of November or December, please consider bringing along a donation of non-perishables or canned goods to donate to our Three Square drop-box. Students and anyone else who wishes to donate can stop in at our Training Center at 3900 Paradise, Ste G, in Las Vegas and drop off non-perishables and canned goods during business hours.
