Healthy Lifestyle Network, Inc. (HLN) was founded in 2000 by Lorna Shelton Beck, a registered dietitian. The main purpose of HLN is to teach residents across various communities healthier ways to prepare foods and to make healthier food choices every day, especially during holidays, to prevent weight gain. In 2002, the organization was incorporated in the state of South Carolina and later gained 501(c)3 non-profit status. Healthy Lifestyle Network, Inc. is managed by a Board of Directors and in Jamaica is managed by an Advisory Board.
Healthy Lifestyle Network, Inc. offers programs and services. Our services include Diabetes Management and Nutrition Education for weight loss, self-management of chronic diseases or health and wellness. Services are provided by Lorna Shelton Beck, RD, MS, MNS, CDE.

Community Health Day Conference & Expo is held on the 1st or 2nd Saturday in November each year. It is designed to educate and empower people to take charge of their health. It is devoted to helping people with diabetes and those at risk for type 2 diabetes. This program has been offered to the public since 2001.
