FEATURED SESSION: Teaching Kitchens as Learning Laboratories for Rehabilitation Patients and Their Medical Providers (418869)

Monday, October 1
1:30 PM - 2:45 PM
Location: Chantilly East

In an era when rates of obesity, diabetes, and other lifestyle-related-diseases challenge medical educators and governments worldwide, it is necessary to consider novel educational strategies, whereby current and future health professionals can be better prepared to proactively advise and teach patients enhanced self-care skills (e.g., diet, movement, stress management, and enhanced behavioral change). This presentation explores several ideas for reforming nutrition education, including "teaching kitchens" as required laboratory classes for nutrition and lifestyle instruction, wearable technologies for tracking behaviors relating to lifestyle choices, and the prospect of hospitals and other medical venues serving as exemplars of healthy, delicious food options.
