Spatulas over Scalpels: Teaching Medical Students the Language of Food


Host: Jennifer Caudle, DO
Guest: Leah Sarris, RD, LDN

It's important for physicians to know how to talk to their patients about healthy eating habits and smart dietary choices, which can be a difficult conversation to have. Tulane Medical School is trying to overcome this obstacle by teaching their medical students how to cook, hoping that it translates into better communication with patients in the future.

Host Dr. Jennifer Caudle explores this innovative program with Chef Leah Sarris, a registered dietitian and Director of Operations and Executive Chef at the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine. They talk about ways in which teaching culinary medicine to medical students is leading to healthy eating habits and improved outcomes for the larger community.
