CulinaryMedicine.org is the home of the Health meets Food curriculum, which was developed to change the dialogue between healthcare professionals and their patients about food and health. The programming is used by over 60 academic medical centers across the United States. Outstanding results have been documented showing positive outcomes in competencies around food and lifestyle interventions amongst medical students, nursing students, residents, and practicing healthcare providers.
As Culinary Medicine is increasingly integrated into medical and professional school curricula around the nation, there remains a tremendous need for leadership to catalyze its inclusion into health profession education, clinical and translational research, and as a vital component for reducing chronic disease and obesity in this country. The Culinary Medicine Specialist Board provides that international leadership.
