Nutrition is one of Maryland University of Integrative Health’s (MUIH) most robust programs.. The University currently offers a Doctor of Clinical Nutrition, Master of Science in Nutrition & Integrative Health, Post-Master’s Certificate in Nutrition & Integrative Health, Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Culinary Health and Healing, among other programs.
Since 1974, MUIH has made it its mission to educate, heal, support, and collaborate in a manner that extends far beyond classroom doors. In its on-campus and telehealth Natural Care Center and community outreach settings, MUIH provides compassionate and affordable health care from student interns and professional practitioners.
With that in mind, MUIH and chef and Mediterranean lifestyle expert, Amy Riolo are teaming up to raise awareness of the importance of making healthful food choices while nourishing the mind, body and spirit.
“Amy Riolo brings a wealth of nutritional expertise as an award-winning, best-selling author and chef,” said Marc Levin, president, and CEO of MUIH. “We’re excited to partner with her to share the vision of MUIH with the wider community.”
Riolo has written several award-winning and diabetes-friendly cookbooks which focus on both living and eating with pleasure and health in mind in order to promote optimal health. Like MUIH, both her cooking and writing draw from traditional wisdom and contemporary science. In her partnership with the University, she will join MUIH’s distinctive community of scholars, researchers, practitioners, and advocates to promote whole person, relationship-centered health care and nutrition.
“As someone who has personally transformed a life-threatening illness through integrative medicine, it is both a pleasure and an honor to collaborate with Maryland University of Integrative Health, a leader in the global transformation of health and wellness, which acknowledges the wisdom of the body and nature as a teacher, and focus on the interconnection of mind, body, and spirit,” said Riolo.
