Series description: 

The ISMA has introduced a monthly Women in Medicine (WIM) Discussion Forum to take the place of our 2022 Women in Medicine Retreat, which was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sessions in this series will take place the third Tuesday of each month from 7 to 8 p.m. ET via Zoom. All female members of ISMA are welcome to join us to connect, network and discuss topics of special significance to female physicians today. Sessions will begin with a brief opening presentation, followed by a facilitated group discussion.

In order to receive CME credit, participants will need to complete the learner assessment survey (evaluation) for each session in which they participate.

This Month's Topic: 

Connecting Your Fork and Your Feelings:  
Using Diet and Strategic Lifestyle Interventions to Optimize Your Mental Health

Discussion points:

  • Identify evidence-based dietary patterns and lifestyle interventions that improve mental health symptoms of depression and anxiety.
  • Identify essential nutrients that support healthy brain function and ways to source them into the diet.

She is a graduate of Indiana University School of Medicine and the Natural Gourmet Institute for Culinary and Healing Arts in New York City.
