Shoutouts to our FAM supporters & vendors

June 24, 2015

Food As Medicine (FAM) Minnesota was a great success, thanks in part to our supporters & vendors! We want to share a behind-the-scenes look at the people and products who help make FAM possible. Click here for more snapshots from FAM MN. Thank you to The University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality and Healing for your coordination and interdisciplinary commitment to whole body wellness!

Our Food As Medicine training is the nation’s leading introductory program in medical nutrition, providing a semester’s worth of nutrition care practices in just four days. We provide a curriculum for physicians, registered dietitians, and educators to bring back to their communities. The next FAM is September 18-22 2015 at Kripalu in Massachusetts.

Functional Formularies gave an inspiring lunchtime talk at FAM. Read about Functional Formularies founder Robin Gentry McGee’s personal journey and how her love for her father helped her create a better liquid feeding option:

This experience even further rooted my feeling that food has the innate power to both harm and heal. I deeply believe that from my father’s suffering he gave not only a great gift to me, but to the world. And I hope to share with as many people as possible.
