I especially want to serve those with a diabetes diagnosis here in the Santa Ynez Valley. I feel good nutrition is vital to health and well-being year-round, yet especially during the November and December holiday times. ” For more information, please contact Bailey directly at 805-694-2351.According to SYVCH Vice President Wende Cappetta, “We are pleased to be able to offer these free, educational and enjoyable classes taught by our clinical dietitian Stacey Bailey.
