Dr. Elizabeth Klodas, Chief Medical Officer and Founder of Step One Foods, will be sharing her experience in treating patients and how it led her to start a food company. Her talk will explore the trials and tribulations of developing a whole new food category, as well as the challenges and opportunities of embracing “food as medicine.” We hope this presentation will also spark reflection on how you can achieve your own best health as we celebrate Heart Month.
