Program Overview:

You may have heard of the Mediterranean diet, but from a health and wellness standpoint, a Mediterranean “lifestyle” is likely the secret! The UD College of Health Science’s Center for Global Health invites you to experience “Un’avventura Sana” (A Healthy Adventure).

Join us as we explore much of Italy from Rome, to Florence to Capri and the Amalfi coast as well as Sienna and much more! Travelers will get a literal and figurative taste of the lifestyle. From walks around breathtaking countryside and heartwarming villages to art, architecture and culture that formed much of the western art and culture we know today. All of this accented by Italian cuisine rich with fresh vegetables, fruit, whole grains and heart-healthy fats, particularly olive oil and omega-3s from fish. Of course, no Italian meal would be complete without red wine (in moderation of course!) which may have heart health benefits and generally lower inflammation in the body as well. Vieni con noi (Come with us) and savor the sights, sounds, smells and sustenance of the country of Italy!
