Barbara Olendzki is a researcher, clinician and educator, fortunate to be at the forefront of a quiet revolution within medicine: to change the course of chronic, often deleterious diseases through food and nutrition. She integrates her nutrition research into clinical practice and provides education to make health through nutrition sustainable. Ms. Olendzki's goal is to provide healing through modification of dietary patterns that preserve culture, tradition, family and community. Culinary Medicine is the way of the future, when physicians will write as many prescriptions for healthy and tasty dietary patterns as we do for now for medication.
