Join Dr. Lisa Price, Northwest Natural Health Clinic, and 21 Acres Chef Emily Moore as they explore food choices and meal preparation in ways that support strong immune systems and prevent disease. You'll taste fresh samples of these meals prepared on the spot by Chef Emily.
Most Americans are aware of research that shows the linkages between eating habits and the risk for several types of cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that as many as 35% of cancer deaths may be related to food alone.
Q: Which foods are associated with a lower cancer risk?
A: For sure, organic fruits and vegetables are prime candidates, but according to the Centers for Disease Control, only about 25% of adults in the U.S. eat the recommended five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
Q: So, how can you increase your consumption of fresh produce in simple ways?
A: Dr. Price and Chef Emily will show you how to make several meals containing organic and sustainable ingredients that are known to be the most protective against cancer.
At the conclusion of the class, students will receive resources about the freshly prepared sample foods and recommendations for incorporating other foods known to promote optimum wellness.
Dr. Lisa Price earned her graduate degree in biochemistry and microbiology and worked professionally as a research scientist before earning her Naturopathic Medicine degree in 1998 from Bastyr University. From 2005 to 2010, she was awarded a National Institutes of Health research fellowship to study the immunological effects of a natural product. Currently, she practices at the Northwest Natural Health Clinic, a specialty clinic providing complementary cancer care as well as general integrative medical solutions for her patients.
Her desire to seek social and environmental justice resulted in activist work for most of her adult life. These include a stint in the Peace Corps and being one of the founders of the Seattle organization Community Coalition for Environmental Justice. As of late, she has focused her energies on educating communities on how to make healthier choices via food and nutrition through online articles, workshops and through her medical practice.
