Food As Medicine Top Quotes

Easily the best nutrition course I have ever taken. Inspiring.

Bravewell Fellow, Integrative Medicine


By far the best continuing education course I have ever attended. It will change how I practice and, more importantly, how I live. The faculty was outstanding, all at the top of their game, and they were so accessible and gracious to us.

This has totally changed how I view health, food, and the culture of healthcare—truly eye opening and inspirational. I will be going home to try this on myself and then sharing it with patients, friends, and the community! I learned more in 4 days here about nutrition and how it impacts health than I had learned in 7 years of training.

The Center for Mind Body Medicine is a reputable and reliable organization that provides academic and experiential training not readily available for most health professionals. They are a change agent for health. If you need help navigating the maze of new nutrition and health information, CMBM is the mouse to follow.

University of Kansas City School of Medicine, Kansas City, MO
