Harvard Medical School’s Osher Institute for Integrative Medicine
Date: Tuesday, September 8th at 8:00-9:00 am on Zoom
Significant gaps in nutrition content exist across the medical education continuum, from new learners to practicing physicians. An emerging approach to enhance mastery of practical nutrition content is that of culinary medicine provided in the context of a teaching kitchen. Preliminary research suggests culinary medicine is an innovative active learning approach that may be an effective pedagogical option that is gaining traction in academic health institutions. At this month’s Integrative Medicine Grand Rounds, join Dr. Melinda Ring, Executive Director of the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Northwestern University, who will discuss her experience with culinary medicine education for health professionals. Join virtually by live stream here.
