Cook Along with Dr. Jyoti Patel, Class of '99
Join Dr. Jyoti Patel on Zoom as she presents a fun, healthy cook-along demonstration. No cost except the food that you will need to purchase to cook along. Register before January 27, 2021 to receive additional emails for the shopping list. Jyoti has made it her passion to bring nutrition education to her patients and her community. She championed a 2.5-acre community garden in her town where the residents gather to grow fres vegetables and share valuable information on food sustainability, water conservation, composting, and living a healthy livestyle. She leads a series called Healing Foods, where she invites local chefs to demonstrate Garden-to-Table recipes to the community in the garden's outdoor kitchen. She believes in the power of 'Food is Medicine' and hopes to share that vision with medical students, residents, and physicians, highlighting the importance of nutrition in preventing disease and breaking the mold in healthcare.
