Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives

February 5 – 7, 2020

Why attend

Conference attendees not only are exposed to the latest systematic reviews of nutrition science, they also taste, prepare, and learn to teach others to enjoy a broad selection of foods that can reduce disease risk and, ideally, replace unhealthy habits throughout a lifetime.

Participants have the opportunity to learn about, taste, and prepare foods in The Culinary Institute of America at Copia Teaching Kitchens under the direction of professional chef educators.
Meals served throughout the course are an intrinsic part of the curriculum. Attendees gather in this celebrated facility in one of the most magical landscapes in the United States to learn how to communicate concepts of healthy food selection and preparation to their patients and clients.
Due to the interactive, hands-on nature of the program, space is very limited and early registration is highly recommended.
