Culinary Medicine Interest Group

The Culinary Interest Group aims to empower students to make smart choices about their diet through education in the culinary arts. Students will become authorities on healthy cooking through hands-on instruction, which will encourage them to prescribe food as medicine and effectively teach their patients to treat food as a measure to prevent chronic diseases.
