Culinary Medicine at Arnot Ogden Medical Center
The Culinary Medicine program was developed by Tulane University and brought to Arnot Ogden Medical Center and the students of Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) by Dr. Beth Dollinger, MD. For medical students, it provides an innovative nutrition course that teaches them how to engage their patients in meaningful dialogue about nutrition and lifestyle, looking to change the existing physician mantra exercise and eat healthy to lose weight.
