Enlightened Medical Education

by on June 26, 2015

Finally some good news. Tulane University is spreading the message that doctors can treat patients with lifestyle education and support – specifically with a healthy diet.

It couldn’t have come at a better time: I have been getting so depressed at the sad state of affairs in medical education.

“It takes a very progressive medical school and dean and faculty to devote time into something that they really haven’t been able to do, which is prevention and wellness,” said Dr. Robert Ellis, an osteopathic physician who teaches at Western University. “It’s a paradigm shift.”

Teaching young medical students that food is medicine. Now that gives me warm fuzzies!
