Why Spectrum Health is teaching doctors about nutrition, cooking


"My hope is that people can appreciate the clear link between food and illness," said Dr. Kristi Artz, an emergency room doctor, who is co-teaching the two-week elective that seeks to translate the clinical research into the kitchen to impact diet related diseases."We want a doctor's conversation with a patient to include what's happening in their lifestyle around food and other behaviors that impact health.''Spectrum teamed up with Grand Rapids Community College to offer the new initiative that includes lectures and hands-on cooking classes. Artz teaches the class with Werner Absenger, chef and program director of GRCC's Secchia Institute for Culinary Medicine and Krista Gast, a registered dietician.The Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University in New Orleans developed and tested the Culinary Medicine curriculum that Spectrum has implemented.
