This highly praised professional training program provides the best introduction to medical nutrition therapy in the US. The program offers participants the latest in science-based nutrition education together with the knowledge, confidence and compassion required to successfully guide patients towards life-giving, healthy nutrition.
As with all the Center’s courses, self-care is at the core of Food As Medicine. After eating colorful, healthy, whole-foods meals during the four-day training, our participants are often inspired to transform their own and their families’ diets, and to authentically recommend healthy transformations for their patients.
This year’s faculty include Mark Hyman, MD, best-selling author and renowned expert on functional medicine; David Ludwig, MD, PhD, Director of the Optimal Weight for Life Program, Children’s Hospital, Boston; Jeanne Wallace, PhD, a leading expert on nutrition and cancer; Kathie Madonna Swift, MS, RD, author, innovator and integrative nutrition practitioner; and Center Founder & Director James S. Gordon, MD.
This is the nutrition class that healthcare professionals tell us they’ve been looking for.
CEU’s and partial scholarships available
