This year, we offer the following educational and skills development programs. You can attend the one(s) that align with your interests:

• Culinary Health Education Fundamentals (CHEF) Coaching —The Basics: A 1-day Culinary Medicine program that provides strategies and skills to empower patients to improve nutrition through home cooking
