Lunch & Learn Medicinal Benefits of Spices
As a part of our Lunch & Learn Series, UAB Arts in Medicine will present physician and chef, Dr. Luis Pineda. He is the founder of Cooking with Cancer, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of cancer patients through food. Dr. Pineda will tell us about his unique experience creating cuisine to aid in healing for people undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments and how spices can be used to benefit general health and wellness.
Cooking with Cancer is a program designed specifically for cancer care of those persons who are afflicted with cancer, caregivers of the patients, and all of those who work in the healthcare industry. The content is recipes researched and tested on patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.
All of Pineda’s recipes are patient-tested, he says, and he encourages visitors to tweak his recipes, or submit their own, on the Cooking with Cancer.
Join us for this nutritious discussion on Wednesday, November 18 at 12pm CT / 1pm ET!
