Using Food to Build Healthy Communities for Working and for Learning

We all eat. Food is a universal experience that brings people together and builds and sustains healthy communities. Sometimes, we celebrate the food experience through the mindful planning and enjoying of meals. But, many times we succumb to the realities of “dining al desko”—eating alone, at our desks, while working or studying.

Featured Project: Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine

The first allopathic medical school to open in New York State in more than 40 years graduated its inaugural class this spring. To truly comprehend this new model of medical education, understand that the basic science of medicine is being taught at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine in the context of real clinical problems. From the moment students first arrive on campus, the curriculum emphasizes clinical training. Hofstra University is creating lifelong learners who will be the medical leaders of the future. The completion of Phase II on the university’s Hempstead, NY, campus provides a glimpse into what a medical school for the 21st century looks like.
