CWRU’s teaching kitchen open house

At Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, the nutrition programs are renowned for their holistic approaches and commitments to high-impact research, education and community programming. And now, the department has a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen to further their work. The Department of Nutrition’s teaching kitchen—one of the largest in the country—aims to transform how the community understands nutrition. From recognizing how healthy-eating habits can prevent disease to acknowledging how an individual’s environment can impact their nutrition, the teaching kitchen will provide students with the awareness, knowledge and skills to create their own healthy eating behaviors and encourage others to do the same.

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to an open house for the teaching kitchen Friday, Sept. 29, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. The kitchen is located at 2201 Circle Dr.

Attendees also will learn about the Master of Science in Nutrition and the Master of Science in Public Health Nutrition programs, with an opportunity to hear directly from students, faculty members and the program directors. Hope Barkoukis, chair of the Department of Nutrition, also will be available to speak with attendees.

Light refreshments will be served.
