MUIH Launches New Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Culinary Health and Healing

Longevity By Nature

On Dec. 9, 2021, Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) will offer a free webinar to discuss the MUIHhighly anticipated curriculum for the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (PBC) in Culinary Health and Healing.

This much needed program fills a national gap in the educational needs of the emerging field of culinary health/medicine. MUIH’s program is one of only two graduate programs in the U.S. at the intersection of the nutrition and culinary fields and it uniquely focuses on whole foods cooking and holistic health and wellness.

According to the nonprofit organization, Food Tank, “Every year 11 million people die prematurely due to unhealthy diets.” Diet-related diseases such as obesity and diabetes are major risk factors.

“In addition to preventing death and disease, the culinary health program also promotes knowledge which enables practitioners to help their clients achieve their health goals and optimal health through proper food choices” said MUIH Brand Ambassador Amy Riolo.

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Culinary Health and Healing educational series is specifically designed to prepare students with the scientifically-based principles and practices of whole foods selection and preparation as a foundation for health and wellness.

MUIH’s unique, inclusive program celebrates global cuisine by enabling students to explore multicultural and culturally specific meal plans. The role of the culinary educator in promoting healthy, personalized diets is investigated as well as how to partner with healthcare practitioners and a variety of clients to support health and healing through nutrition. This program sets graduates apart from their peers with core competencies in the emerging field of culinary health/medicine and the rapidly growing field of holistic integrative nutrition. This 12-credit program can be completed fully online in two trimesters (eight months) and begins in 2022.
