Food should be enjoyed, savored and shared, and it can be your best tool in the fight to prevent diseases. Join Allison Harrell, Registered Dietitian and Certified Culinary Medicine Specialist in the kitchen where she will share what foods to add to your plate to help prevent cancer. She will discuss what to add to your routine so that it crowds out the food that does not support optimal health. During this culinary health session, you will gain confidence in the kitchen and get to taste some of these delicious dishes that support your health.
Harrell will be joined in the Center for Health & Wellbeing’s Nutrition Theatre by Anupama Saigal, MD, a fellowship trained breast surgical oncologist with AdventHealth.
