The University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (UACIM) has opened registration for the 2016 Nutrition & Health Conference, March 21-23, in Denver, CO. The conference brings together internationally recognized researchers, clinicians, educators and chefs to explore good nutrition and health. This year’s faculty include Loren Cordain, PhD, founder of the Paleo Diet movement; Kathie Swift, MS, RDN, LDN, FAND, a nationally recognized speaker and education director for Food as Medicine; Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, Harvard School of Public Health and author of Eat Drink and Be Healthy; Peter Green, MD, director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University; and Andrew Weil, MD, director of UACIM and integrative medicine pioneer.
“We know that simple, low-cost, and low-tech lifestyle changes such as improved diet are proven to be extremely effective for both prevention and treatment of many conditions,” said Dr. Weil, whose new cookbook, Fast Food, Good Food: More Than 150 Quick and Easy Ways to Put Healthy, Delicious Food on the Table, was just published. He will be lecturing and leading a cooking demonstration at this year’s conference.
The Nutrition & Health Conference leads by example, featuring meals that are flavorful and delicious but also adhere to the high standards set forth in lecture. Chef Rebecca Katz, MS, has designed artful menus that provide satisfying meals with solid nutrition so attendees can get the most out of their conference experience.
Open to virtually any health-care professional with an interest in preventive medicine and healthful living, the Nutrition & Health Conference offers up to 19.75 units of continuing education credit through CMEsolutions, valid for several different professional organizations.
