This past year’s conference was an amazing success and hundreds of healthcare and foodservice professionals came together to learn about optimal strategies for feeding kids and families, ways to effect change in our healthcare system that leads to implementation of Culinary Medicine programming, and practical strategies for practice transformation.

For those of you not able to attend, you can still register and “attend” the recorded conference. All of the programming has been recorded and you will have full access (except for our Friday keynote with Dr. Marion Nestle, which will be available only until Friday June 11th).
