COURSE DESCRIPTION

“Teaching Kitchens” are more than kitchens. They are “learning laboratories” where individuals receive practical, hands-on guidance to “eat, cook, move and think more healthfully”. Dozens of Teaching Kitchens have been built in hospitals, medical schools, universities, college campuses, corporate worksites, K-12 schools, YMCA’s, Veterans Administration hospitals, retirement facilities, and community-based organizations. Teaching Kitchen curricula often include: (1) nutrition education, (2) hands-on culinary instruction, (3) advise regarding enhanced movement and exercise, (4) guidance on the optimal use of web-based technologies, (5) mindfulness training, and (6) personalized health coaching.

The 2022 Teaching Kitchen Research Conference is an international scientific meeting hosted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Department of Nutrition, in collaboration with the Teaching Kitchen Collaborative (www.teachingkitchens.org). The purpose of this scientific meeting is to enable researchers to present original findings on teaching kitchen curricula, facilities, research strategies, impact and benefits with the purpose of advancing the design, methodology, implementation, and evaluation of replicable teaching kitchen programs across a wide range of populations.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Identify different types of teaching kitchens, including facilities, essential curricular components, and business/financial models

  • Explore how teaching kitchens are being used as educational training sites and learning labs for the healthcare team as well as cross collaborative setting
  • Recognize opportunities to establish and/or work with teaching kitchens in your own clinical or educational setting
  • Explore how teaching kitchens are being used to assess changes in behaviors and critical outcomes of selected populations
  • Identify different options and methods of payment and return on investment
