The USA Health Culinary Medicine program aims to motivate individuals to eat more fruits and vegetables and arm them with the cooking skills they need to prepare the meals. Dr. Robert Israel, a board-certified internal medicine physician with USA Health, will lead you in creating a meal that is healthy, quick and delicious.

About Dr. Robert Israel:
Dr. Israel earned his medical degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and completed his residency at the Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

“I gradually learned over years of practice that most chronic diseases I was treating in the office -- cancer, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, falls with injury and such -- were actually lifestyle diseases or related to unhealthy lifestyle choices,” Dr. Israel said. “The way we in healthcare were dealing with that was not working. In fact, it was failing miserably.”

Israel looked into what other universities were piloting and delved into Michael Pollen’s “Food Rules,” and “The Omnivore’s Dilemma.” What he learned was life changing. “I also realized that saying, ‘Go eat more vegetables and fruit’ to a patient, who might not even know how to hold a knife, made no sense,” he said. “So, we had to start where our grandmothers and great-grandmothers started, in the prep."
