Event Details

 

Culinary Nutrition: Basics of Mediterranean Diet:

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), primary prevention is the most effective and affordable method to prevent chronic disease, and dietary interventions positively impact health outcomes across the lifespan. The Mediterranean diet is not about recipes or diet plan but quality food components. Research has shown that patients who follow the Mediterranean diet have a 30% reduction in death for all diseases.

In this series, you will learn the basics of the Mediterranean Diet: Through hands-on learning, we will apply components of the Mediterranean diet utilizing cutting-edge culinary techniques with a healthy twist. Improving your patients’ diets will help reduce the risk of or prevent disease; thereby improving their health.

Prevention strategies for chronic GI diseases will be discussed at the end of the training through case studies. Recipes will focus on the fall harvest of fruits and vegetables, ancient grains and heart healthy fats.

The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health's Nourish Program has established a nutrition hub in the heart of the Texas Medical Center providing a unique training ground for students, health care professionals, and community members from across Texas and nationwide. This first of its kind initiative educates and equips participants with the tools, knowledge, and hands-on experience necessary to prevent and address nutrition-related health conditions.The initiative also facilitates collaborative inter-institutional research. 

In addition, the Nourish Program has brought training of health professionals in line with several national initiatives and guidelines. This innovative program has closed the gap in nutrition training and education research among students, health care professionals, and community members to ultimately lower rates of obesity and nutrition-related chronic diseases. 

The Nourish Program features three state-of-the-art integrated facilities – a Research and Development Kitchen, Holistic Garden, and Simulation Lab.
