About Timothy S. Harlan, MD, FACP
"Eating well and eating healthy is the same thing," says Dr. Timothy Harlan, a.k.a. "Dr. Gourmet," who discovered his love of food long before embarking on a successful career as a physician. By the age of 18, Dr. Harlan was managing his first restaurant and opened an intimate French bistro at age 22. Returning to school to pursue a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management, Dr. Harlan found his way to medicine. While completing his degree, he began writing about the clear link between food and health, blending his extensive knowledge of food and nutrition with his medical expertise.
Dr. Harlan is Executive Director of The Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine (GCCM) at Tulane University. GCCM is part of an innovative program at Tulane University that requires medical students to work in the nation's first medical school teaching kitchen to gain a real-world understanding of diet and lifestyle in a setting that bridges the gap between basic sciences, clinical medicine, the community and culinary education. GCCM's unique curriculum has currently been adopted by over 20% of medical schools in the U.S., ensuring that future clinicians have greater knowledge of and appreciation for the vital role nutrition plays in overall health.
If you'd like to learn more about the connection between health and nutrition while in New Orleans for Psych Congress, the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University will be offering four (4) different accredited cooking modules.
