Here we are at the start of 2019, and there’s likely something on the mind of several of our readers: how can we get back on track with our nutrition and health. The holidays certainly can take a toll on the waistline as well as overall health.

To start the year off right, might we recommend some help from Chef Chris Wyatt. He is the Community Culinary and Wellness Manager for Renown Health, and he is hosting a special Food as Medicine lecture to help you integrate healthier food into your daily routine.

The lecture takes place at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22, at Mack Auditorium, Renown Regional Medical Center, 1155 Mill St. The event is free.

What is ‘Food as Medicine’? 

Food as Medicine is more than just a catchy slogan. It’s a whole movement that promotes better personal health through dietary education and discussion. The goal with Food as Medicine is to shift toward a low-fat, high fiber, plant-centered diet.


Among the topics that Wyatt will cover in his lecture are foods that actively fight cancer, as well as ones that prevent heart disease and diabetes. He’ll also share some practical and delicious tips for cooking nutritious meals.

Wyatt has the expertise to help you out, with more than 30 years professional food and beverage experience with the last five years solely focused on healthy cooking for Renown Health. His passion lies in battling chronic disease through dietary education and health conscientious cooking presentations.
