“Physician’s Kitchen is the perfect opportunity for a doctor to incorporate lifestyle medicine in their practice. It’s easy, friendly, healthy, fun and delicious. As doctors, we can step out of our habits and join our patients in the kitchen, and encourage our patients to change their habits around eating. I’ve done several Physician’s Kitchen events and strongly recommend the experience for you and your patients!”
Based in Science
The science is clear – food has a direct impact on health. In fact according to research, nearly 78 percent of healthcare expenditures are for the treatment of chronic diseases, many of which can be directly improved by diet and lifestyle. But changing diet and lifestyle are big endeavors that require a personal commitment that can be very challenging for many people.
We believe that many people, physicians included, lack the culinary skills and resources necessary to support and sustain real change. That’s where a Physician’s Kitchen can help.
The Physician’s Kitchen Experience
A Physician’s Kitchen works much like a public cooking class, the biggest difference is that you’re the host and the class is made up of your patients, or people seeking to learn more about culinary health.
Each class is 2 ½ hours long and can accommodate 14 students; it includes a Professional Chef Instructor, 2 assistants and a predetermined menu. Your guests will arrive, you will have a few minutes to greet or present to your guests and then the Chef Instructor will begin class. Everyone cooks together, and at the end of class, everyone sits down and shares a meal of their creations. There is much opportunity for conversation and interaction.
We Help You at Every Step
We provide an HTML email template, email content, and flyers you can print and use in your office to promote the event. Patients are able to visit a custom registration site to sign up and pay for their spot in the class. We handle all of the details and make sure they get the information they need.
If you’d like to reach new patients, we can also work with you to market your Physician’s Kitchen to the general public and invite others to join your event.
We work with you to make it easy.
