Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Culinary medicine courses blend culinary arts and social science with biomedical nutrition science to increase student capacity to coach patients towards healthier eating.

We describe how others involved in culinary medicine courses might integrate such intuitive partnerships into curricular development.
