About the U-M Food for Life Kitchen 

Culinary medicine is a growing field that explores the links between food and health, applying the foundations of nutritional science side-by-side with traditional medical interventions in clinical care. Michigan Medicine is breaking new ground in this emerging specialty. A multidisciplinary partnership is working to advance our knowledge of the medical consequences of what, when and how much we eat, and offering practical advice and experiences to help patients develop smart, sensible, sustainable food strategies.  

 Just as the kitchen is the center of the home, we have created the U-M Food for Life Kitchen, a dedicated, hands-on learning space to serve as a hub for a number of programs where food and health intersect.  Learn more about culinary medicine, the various classes offered and see the Food for Life Kitchen.
