Health meets Food: The Culinary Medicine Curriculum

a Health meets Food class meets at the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine

2020 Poster Session

We were disappointed to not be able to gather this year for The Culinary Medicine Conference. An important part of the conference is the poster sessions.

There were many fine posters submitted for consideration, and we will hold a virtual poster session starting at 1:00 PM Eastern, November 20, 2020 via Zoom.

Poster authors will have the opportunity to present and participate in breakout sessions for questions and answers.
