New Jewel in Town: Akua Woolbright, Ph.D., @ Midtown Detroit Whole Foods Market


-By Hertha J. Woodruff, A.M.L.S., M.A.

There is a new jewel in town and her name is Akua Woolbright, Ph. D., the new community health and wellness educator for the Midtown Detroit Whole Foods Market located on Mack Avenue in the university district.  Our family had the opportunity of visiting the new Whole Foods Market this past summer. We love the extensive and tasty carryout food offerings.  There also is a natural juice bar which may be the only one in a Whole Foods Market in the state Michigan.  Akua just opened a new education center last month.  The facility has a teaching kitchen and is now conducting yoga plus other fitness classes.   Akua is in the midst of her February 28-Day Healthy Eating Challenge.  I contacted her last week and she shared some of her teaching resources.  E-mail her directly if you have questions or if you want to join her mailing list at [email protected].
