Food Matters for Health Professionals is a 1.5-day intensive workshop for health professionals and is an evidence-based culinary nutrition course for health professionals and clinicians.
In this course, you will explore the role of food, lifestyle, and cooking in preventative health and wellbeing, as well as the impact food has on disease management. This intensive workshop is a blend of classroom discussion and hands-on cooking in the kitchen (including full meals each day). “Food Matters” is suitable for all health professionals who want to incorporate food-based nutrition in clinical practice and self-care.
Topics include food-related clinical implications for diabetes and metabolic syndrome; inflammation and the gut; and eating styles such as Mediterranean, vegetarian, vegan, and paleo will also be examined. Additionally, you'll explore inflammation and anti-inflammatory diets, gut health and dysbiosis, sugar and metabolism, fats, nutrient absorption, brain health, and sustainable food systems—all crucial areas of knowledge when counseling patients on diet, food access, and lifestyle choices.
Co-caught by Dr. Kate Shafto, MD, FAAP, FACP CTropMed®, and Jenny Breen, MPH, MEd, Professional Chef, Food Matters will cover the role of food, lifestyle, and cooking in preventative health and wellbeing.
A unique hands-on component will bring participants into a training kitchen during each session, where they will learn basic foundational techniques (knife skills, vegetable prep, creating basic sauces) and cook and eat a meal as a class. This experiential component offers healthcare providers a chance to apply nutritional knowledge in a context their patients can understand: the kitchen. Utilizing fresh, whole ingredients and practicing a mindful eating activity in the course not only builds providers' toolkits for speaking with patients about how to apply healthy eating habits at home, it offers health professionals strategies for incorporating applied nutrition into their own lives, thus improving self-care and reducing burnout.
