The goal of Temple Culinary Medicine would be to address these problems by offering hands on culinary education to both care providers and patients. Care providers can learn tips, tricks, and conversation topics to make them feel more comfortable talking to patients about diets. This will also give them somewhere to refer a patient whom they feel is at significant risk for dietary health complications. Patients on the other hand will learn practical and applicable knowledge on how to cook and how easy it can be to modify their diets to eat affordably healthy. yesyesyesyes

The goal of the Urban Healthcare Organization is to examine this issue through informing medical students of historical and current healthcare, political, and societal practices that have exacerbated, exploited, or created disadvantaged populations. As medical students and future physicians it is extremely important to be aware of the history of these practices to not only avoid making similar mistakes, but also realize the awesome power granted physicians.yesyesyesyes
