    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    You go to your doctor for a routine check-up, and come out with a prescription—for fruits and vegetables. Culinary medicine stands poised to revolutionize the medical field and alter the way doctors and patients approach pervasive chronic health conditions and disease. Join a physician, policy expert and chefs for a discussion of how food can be used as medicine, with the potential to control and change the path of a disease.
