This is a guest post by Stefanie Stevenson, M.D., our Integrative Physician at Nourish.
I’m so excited to go to Boston for the 9th annual Nutrition and Health Conference in a few days. It may seem obvious to many of you that the two go together, but you would be amazed by how many doctors do not recognize the connection between the two (health and nutrition) although this is beginning to change. I understood the connection on a superficial level before I attended my first conference three years ago, but came away with a much deeper level of understanding and a passion to pass on the information I learned. For the first time I felt my role as a physician broaden. Yes, I see myself as a healer, but also an educator, an activist, and a public health servant.
I want everyone to be able to experience this conference! Since I can’t bring you all to Boston, I will bring Boston to you. Please look for my conference updates next week, where I will share my most important learning take-aways.
