Dietary Approaches to Dyslipidemia and Cardiovascular Risk Reduction

February 29, 2024

Registration Full

Culinary Medicine is a highly immersive, one-day workshop that focuses on practical strategies you can implement directly into clinical practice. Covering knowledge translation ideas, dietary prescriptions, and food selection and preparation, you will learn how to effectively help patients integrate therapeutic dietary patterns into their overall lifestyle.

With a focus on cardiovascular health, a Food and Recipe Demonstration led jointly by a professional chef and physician will showcase budget-friendly ingredient options and cooking techniques that can be modified for a variety of dietary accommodations. A simulated Grocery Shopping Experience will introduce widely accessible, convenient, and low-cost food options included in cardioprotective therapeutic diets that are available in most grocery stores.

Join us for a day of fun and interactive learning, recipe testing, and food tasting. Explore how we can integrate nutrition and lifestyle medicine education into clinical practice for better health outcomes. As health care providers, we can inspire a movement of healthy cooking and eating by sharing this knowledge with our patients.

Target Audience

This workshop is designed for primary care providers who are interested in integrating nutrition education into their practice.
