Culinary Medicine Education

Delta Dental of Colorado is supporting interdisciplinary education among health professionals through the Frontier Center at the CU School of Dental Medicine. One of the latest ventures takes a cohort of students to the College of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University for a culinary nutrition elective course.

The class, which meets for eight weeks, consists of a two-hour discussion followed by a hands-on training in cooking techniques. Students come away from the course with a better understanding of nutrition and how to communicate the importance of healthy choices to their patients.
