We are delighted to invite you to the 2018 Food as Medicine Update: What to tell your patients about diet and chronic disease prevention, to be held at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute in Toronto on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 from 8:30am to 4:30pm.

The Food as Medicine Update series was created to address the knowledge-gap in continuing medical education related to the role of nutrition in patient care.  It is a full day symposium for healthcare professionals designed to address the emerging interest in theraputic diets for chronic disease prevention.

A special feature of the 2018 Food as Medicine Update will be the Rundle-Lister Lectureship in Transformative Nutritional Medical Education, which will be awarded this year to Dr. David Jenkins, MD, FRCPC in recognition of his outstanding contributions to translational research in the field of therapeutic diets and chronic disease prevention.

We look forward to welcoming you at the 2018 Food as Medicine Update.

Sincerely,

2018 Food as Medicine Update Steering Committee
