The Marilyn Magaram Center (MMC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) is proud to announce a partnership to reduce sodium consumption with the launch of LACDHP’s Sodium Reduction Initiative (SRI).

To kickoff the partnership, we launched SRI's "Eat Your Best" campaign along with our food demonstration presented by CSUN Dining and the Marilyn Magaram Center.  “Eat Your Best” promotes serving fresh and delicious plant-based foods as a strategy to reduce sodium on university campuses and among health care providers.
