Culinary medicine is an evidence-based field that brings together medical, nutrition, and culinary knowledge to assist patients in maintaining health, preventing, and treating disease by choosing high-quality, healthy foods in conjunction with appropriate medical care. By utilizing practical approaches to assist patients in unlocking the benefits of food as medicine, providers can reinforce dietary management as the treatment for celiac disease. The Innovations in Culinary Medicine Pilot Project will include a series of quarterly webinars, each led by experts in the field, covering topics ranging from the latest research in celiac disease to nutrition strategies tailored for individuals with gluten-related disorders. The sessions will also feature live cooking demonstrations conducted by skilled chef educators certified by Harvard Medical School and the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine.
