Event Types :
Join us in-person or watch along live online for a special Food as Medicine cooking program, focused on foods to support healthy bones.

Many nutrients, such as calcium, vitamin D, protein, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium, play a key role in bone health. If you eat a healthy diet (with lots of fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and lean proteins), you’ll get enough of most nutrients needed to keep your bones healthy and functioning well.

Join Rothman Orthopaedics’ Dr. Jason Epstein and Allison Harrell, Registered Dietitian and Culinary Medicine Specialist, to learn more about how to keep your bones strong and taste delicious food to support your bone health.

You have two options for attending this program – save your seat in the Nutrition Theatre or click here to register for our free webinar and watch it from home. Whether you’re watching from inside the Nutrition Theatre or from home, you’ll also have the opportunity to share your questions and comments with Allison and Dr. Epstein during the program.

This is a demonstration-style cooking program, so our in-person attendees should prepare to sit back, relax and let our chef prepare the meal while you enjoy the delicious items. All attendees, both online and in-person, will receive a booklet for specific recipes: Mini egg bites, peanut butter and jelly power bowl, a mocktail recipe.

This program is presented by Allison Harrell and Dr. Jason Epstein and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation and AdventHealth.

Cancelling Your Reservation: In order to receive a full refund, participants must cancel their program registration at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled start of the program. Center for Health & Wellbeing’s Refund Policy >>>
