The relationship between health and diet has long been recognized, so it is no surprise to find St. Joseph Riverside Hospital in Warren hosting a Food Fair in 1965. Seen here in a Catholic Exponent photo are (left to right) Ora Williams, dietitian at St. Joseph Hospital; Colleen Heberstroh, private consulting dietitian; and Holy Humility of Mary Sister Ann Joseph, director of dietetics at the hospital.
Invitations to the Food Fair went out to students in all Catholic and public schools in the area, with hopes to attract interest in the career of dietetics. Guidance counselors and home economics teachers were also invited.
The Sisters of the Humility of Mary began to operate St. Joseph Riverside Hospital in 1924. The last hospital services in the building were closed in 1996.
