About the Program

Leveraging the tenets of our professional-level Hearth to Health training curriculum, this Puglia-based program offers a unique opportunity to experience food as medicine through immersion into history, culture and Salentine (Puglia) cuisine. Through a series of interactive Food As Medicine lectures, mirroring  the Hearth to Health curriculum,  we establish an evidence-based nutritional blueprint for health. As the week unfolds,  translate this nutrition blueprint through journeys into local history, culture, the Puglia landscape, and importantly, its cuisine.  Our vision is that this program represents a translational experience, mirroring the food and lifestyle concepts that are a foundation for Food As Medicine and Functional Medicine. 

We have purposely crafted this program to provide a balance of intellectual stimulation, culinary- cultural exploration and plenty of downtime at each destination. 



A Unique Interactive Immersion Experience

Our Puglia-based program is offered to both the public and nutrition experts. We purposely invite practitioners to experience this dynamic program as both a nutrition expert, but also through the eyes of the public. For practitioners, this is both an observational and an immersion learning experience.
