Tulane University spreads 'Food As Medicine' ideology by requiring that students learn how to cook

Tulane University’s School of Medicine created the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine to integrate culinary arts into the medical curriculum.

While diet has always been important to overall general health, this is the US’s first teaching kitchen affiliated with a medical school. The center will teach cooking techniques to med students, residents, doctors, chefs, as well as members of the community in order to spread how food can help manage obesity, diabetes, and other associated diseases. The goal of the program is to teach students how to cook and help them have conversations around food with their patients. The center also offers free community cooking classes taught by staff and medical students as well as provides educational programming and conducts nutrition research.
