The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in association with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health recently launched "The "Teaching Kitchen Collaborative" (TKC), a learning network of thought leaders from, initially, 26 organizations using teaching kitchen facilities as catalysts of enhanced personal and public health across medical, corporate, school, and community settings. The Collaborative is an outgrowth of the long-running CIA-Harvard Chan School Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives® conference series for medical professionals that integrates state of the science around nutrition, exercise and movement, mindfulness, and health coaching with a framework of culinary strategies.

The TKC will develop best practices for reproducibility and scalability of emerging models of teaching kitchens and related educational programs, as well as explore the creation of a research network to support the evaluation of the clinical, behavioral, and financial impact of selected best practices across various populations and settings. This session will also explore the current and potential roles of RDN's in advancing the teaching kitchen movement.
