Virtual Poster Session – Health meets Food: The Culinary Medicine Conference

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 posters submitted for consideration and we will hold a virtual poster session starting at 1:00 PM EDT November 20, 2020 via Zoom. Poster authors will have the opportunity to present and participate in breakout sessions for questions and answers.

This is the opportunity to showcase how your organization has utilized Culinary Medicine, diet, nutrition and other programming in teaching and/or patient intervention. Others can review your work and get ideas for using the their school or organization. Student submissions are mostencouraged.
