Food IQ in Medical School: Part 2
As I finish putting together the finishing touches on lecture portion of my class on food for medical students, its time to focus on the really fun part of this class. For a clinical rotation, they’ll be joining me at a supermarket. I want them to understand what their patients deal with on an every day basis. Ideally, I’m hoping that a higher Food IQ along with some compassion will help to make better doctors.
Two questions for you:
What edible foodlike substances do you think I should introduce to these future physicians?
What real food should they know about?
Post your ideas in the comments section. Forward this anyone you know who would like to see doctors with a higher Food IQ!
