Culinary Medicine Interest Group

Mission:

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.
