Food as Medicine: Eat Your Way to a Stronger Body

Food has an outstanding presence in the "new normal" of our COVID-19 world. We’re balancing more daily meal prep and the frustrations of grocery shopping while trying to be ever-more conscious of our health and of our immune systems. With fewer available options, we need to be strategic about what’s in our fridges and pantries – and this lecture seeks to simplify the menu planning process, providing a template for preparing affordable meals which meet the unique nutritional needs of older adults. There will be time reserved for Q & A.

Intended audience: 

This presentation is intended for general interest, with a specific focus on the health needs of older adults. The content is also appropriate for caregivers and other professionals working with older adults in a home-care setting.

About the presenter:

Erin Fredericks holds a master’s in Nutrition from the National University of Natural Medicine, and spent nearly two decades working in food & healthcare publishing for leading brands like Bon Appetit Magazine, Martha Stewart and WebMD. She is an advocate for Food as Medicine, particularly its role in healthy aging.
