The article focuses on the Dining for Wellness program launched by David Koelling, corporate director of hospitality service for Senior Lifestyle Corp., in an effort to influence residents in the company's 50 U.S. communities toward healthy food options. He decided to focus on education about an illness such as diabetes rather than the menu to make an impact on healthy dining. The program focused on six ailments that affect seniors.
