LESS THAN 1/3 THIRD OF U.S. MEDICAL SCHOOLS ACTUALLY PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH THE MINIMUM RECOMMENDED 25 HOURS OF NUTRITION INSTRUCTION!!!!!
A report published by the American Academy of Family Physicians announced that a grant was awarded to West Virginia University to teach third year medical students about nutrition, culinary science and exercise. Noting that chronic disease practice guidelines routinely call for lifestyle change and that FEWER THAN ONE IN FOUR PHYSICIANS FEEL ADEQUATELY TRAINED TO COUNSEL PATIENTS about making such changes, a new program, called Medical Curriculum in Health, Exercise, and Food Science, has been introduced in West Virginia to teach medical students about healthy eating.
Doctors are already under a time crunch. In the 5-15 minutes they spend with you in the exam room there is a lot to cover. Even with this training for future physicians it will be hard to get the information, motivation and counseling you need.
That is why Weight Wellness Center, LLC was created. To educate you NOW about all things food and nutrition, one on one, with the culinary element available in our teaching kitchen.
