Sowela to Offer Evidence-Based Culinary Medicine Program -

A Louisiana community college is adding a new concentration to its culinary arts degreeand it's all about health.

Sowela Technical Community College's new Culinary Medicine Concentration blends the "art of preparing and presenting food with the science of medicine to target disease processes or overall health," per a press release.

"The emphasis is on hands-on participation, including meal preparation and cooking skills, in a kitchen setting while discussing ingredients related to health," says Chancellor Neil Aspinwall.

The school is the first community college in Louisiana and the second higher educational institution in the state to offer an evidence-based Culinary Medicine program, reports the American Press.

The program will help doctors, nurses, dieticians, and other healthcare providers learn innovative ways to promote the health of their patients and family members.

"The goal of empowering individuals and families to eat healthier is far less costly than the medications and invasive procedures needed to manage chronic disease," says Danette Null, director of the residency program at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Lake Charles.
