Although diet and nutrition are fundamental to addressing today’s most common and costly health conditions, US physicians receive minimal nutrition education in medical school, and typically none in the many training years that follow.
This Congressional Briefing will describe the health and fiscal consequences of inadequate physician nutrition education – as well as outline a range of possible policy remedies and actions readily available to Congress and federal agencies.
This briefing features special guest Congressman Jim McGovern, and is organized by the Nutrition Education Working Group in collaboration with the House Hunger Caucus and the House Food is Medicine Working Group.
