We have an announcement to make: we’re heading to Indianapolis, Indiana for Food As Medicine June 6 – 9, 2013! It will be our first time in the Midwest, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
This is a mission-driven program for the Center. IU School of Medicine is about to become the largest medical school in the United States. Yes! Really! And– Indiana has one of the largest problems with obesity in the US. We want to be there, educating health professionals about the powerful tools of medical nutrition therapy and teaching ways of helping people fall in love with delicious, healthy whole foods!
It’s a lifestyle change, as much as anything else, as we know. And the time we spend at Food As Medicine brings up all sorts of practical information, tastes and creativity using science and culinary alchemy to change lives.
Read what 1st year IU med student Katie Hodgdon wrote about Food As Medicine 2012 in the blog A Doctor in the House.
Keep your eye on our program page and join our mailing list to stay informed. We’ll let you know the minute registration is open. And plan to join us for a feast of science, wisdom– and the world’s best food!
With thanks to a couple of folks at IU Medical School, Suzanne Kunkle and Roy Geib, for the warm invitation, and to Patty Hollingsworth of IU Wellness for cheering us on
