Culinary medicine is an educational and nutritional approach to improving eating behaviors and overall health by focusing on food shopping, storage, and meal preparation skills. At the Osher Center for Integrative Health, our interdisciplinary team utilizes food as medicine to teach students and patients the importance of food and its impact on your health.

Develop a Personalized Nutrition Plan with a Lifestyle Medicine Consultation

doctor and patient in exam roomOur goal is to work with you to create a personalized self-care plan that you can implement and sustain with your lifestyle.

At your lifestyle medicine consultation, you will initially meet with your physician or nurse practitioner for one hour. They will learn about your personal, medical and family history; your dietary, exercise and sleep habits; your sources of stress and coping mechanisms, and then will assess your health concerns and evaluate your symptoms, order any necessary tests and create mutually agreed upon lifestyle prescriptions.

To schedule a consultation, call 513-475-9567.
