Food As Medicine Conference: June 9-12

From The Center for Mind-Body Medicine

Our aim is to give our attendees both the knowledge and confidence they need to begin practicing on Monday morning.

How well do we succeed? Judging by the number of alums who return, very well indeed. And the number of people who say, “This was the best medical conference I ever attended” is astounding.

What makes this program different?

Designed by our Executive Chef Rebecca Katz, MS, the luncheons are organic, colorful, healthy and outrageously delicious. Yes – you can have it all!
