Diet has been identified as the top risk factor for morbidity and mortality in the U.S., however, most clinicians receive little training in nutrition. This activity seeks to share information on how addressing diet through culinary medicine can help bridge this gap in knowledge.
- Define culinary medicine and recite background on the movement to improve health using food.
- Identify the evidence for cooking in ways that are appropriate for chronic disease prevention and treatment.
- Detail the importance of personal health behaviors in the care of your patients.
- Deploy tips to use in counseling patients in making culturally-tailored dietary behavior changes that are sensitive to time and budget considerations.
