Saturday, October 22, from 9 am to 5:30 pm | Stony Brook Southampton Campus
The Food Lab at Stony Brook Southampton presents an engaging, hands-on workshop that offers participants an introduction to basic cooking and nutrition skills to help prevent the three major causes of death and disease in America: heart disease, cancer and stroke.
Students will come away with many easy-to-implement food principles, new recipes and cooking skills, as well as an opportunity ask specific questions for nutritional needs to prevent or address current illness. This workshop is ideal for healthcare professionals, parents of young children and those trying to improve their overall diet and eating habits.
Students who complete the workshop will be issued a digital badge in recognition of the skills they will have developed. Digital badges are microcredentials that may be displayed in online portfolios and shared via social media sites, such as LinkedIn.
