Food is medicine and has healing powers. It can help alleviate inflammation, increase energy levels, assist in sleep and so much more.

Attendees will also take part in a healthy cooking demonstration and receive short, simple recipes they can cook at home.

Dr. Shad is a clinical associate professor at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix and director of the Public Health, Prevention and Population Health Theme. He is a Stanford-trained physician, medical educator, public speaker and aspiring author. Dr. Shad has said he believes teaching about prevention and nutrition is imperative to medical education. It is an issue that can only improve through public awareness and the proper education of future physicians.
