Brenda Davis, RD

November 19, 2019 12:00 PM iCentral Time (US and Canada)

Description: This webinar examines the link between diet and type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. We will review current research that demonstrates the power of whole food plant-based nutrition in treating type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. This discussion will challenge many of the commonly held beliefs about diabetes, including the optimal quantity and sources of macronutrients. It provides a blueprint for designing a diet that offers the most effective strategy for complete and prolonged remission of this disease.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review 4 contributing drivers of insulin resistance.
2. Discuss 3 important components for the reversal of type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance.

Teaching Kitchens as Learning Laboratories and Translational Research Centers

Featured Speaker: 

David Eisenberg, MD

December 12, 2019 12:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)

Description: “Teaching Kitchens” are more than kitchens. They are “learning laboratories” where individuals receive practical, hands-on guidance to “eat, cook, move and think more healthfully”. As such, they serve as translational educational and research hubs for practitioners, investigators, and advocates of Lifestyle Medicine.

Dozens of Teaching Kitchens already exist in hospitals, medical schools, universities, college campuses, corporate worksites, K-12 schools, YMCAs, Veterans Administration hospitals, retirement facilities, and community-based organizations.

Teaching Kitchen curricula often include: (1) dietary assessment and nutrition education, (2) hands-on culinary instruction, (3) advice regarding enhanced movement and exercise, (4) guidance on the optimal use of web-based technologies, (5) mindfulness training, and (6) personalized health coaching. Only recently, however, have teaching kitchen thought leaders begun to jointly develop best practices.

In this Webinar, Dr. David Eisenberg, Director of Culinary Nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, will describe the emergence of Teaching Kitchens nationally and internationally, and suggest ways in which research involving Teaching Kitchens may serve to inform those involved with Lifestyle Medicine.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the conceptual framework of “Teaching Kitchens” and how these relate to core competencies of Lifestyle Medicine.
2. Describe examples of built-in, mobile and pop-up Teaching Kitchens across the US.
3. Describe current efforts to develop a Teaching Kitchen Research Network to formally evaluate the impact of reproducible teaching kitchen curricular models on the behaviors, biomarkers, clinical outcomes and costs of teaching kitchen trainees.
4. Share teaching kitchen resources, events, and opportunities to learn more.
5. Discuss how Teaching Kitchens may become valued Learning Laboratories within the practice of Lifestyle Medicine.
