Nutrition & Culinary Medicine

During my first year of medical school at Johns Hopkins, I established the Nutrition in Medicine (NiM) Interest Group and the Teaching Kitchen to empower students with practical nutrition and culinary knowledge to counsel patients on healthy dietary practices.

We created the B’more Healthy Cookbook to promote healthy eating in the Baltimore community. Our group was selected to participate in the 2015-16 cohort of Johns Hopkins University’s Social Innovation Lab to develop community cooking and nutrition classes.
