Rouxbe Cooks Up Partnership with the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM)

Rouxbe Partners with National College of Natural Medicine to Broaden Wellness Reach & Services

We are cooking up a partnership with the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) and we wanted to share a web-based educational experience with you that you may find useful as you learn to cook. NCNM, the oldest and largest Naturopathic College in the US, is hosting a Food as Medicine Symposium webinar event that is focused on the connections between cooking, eating and wellness.

Since we now have many health professionals among our ranks, many have asked about other opportunities that can support their culinary instruction at Rouxbe. NCNM is offering a unique opportunity via a two-day webinar that reinforces the importance of cooking with real, whole foods. But, it’s not just for professionals – anyone can attend this unique event.

This event is open to the general public, as well as to health professionals, for continuing education. It is part of a larger initiative that NCNM is spearheading, and we think it pairs nicely with work we are doing around wellness at Rouxbe and our commitment to getting people back in the kitchen.

Rouxbe Announces Wellness Advisory Board!

The day food and cooking is paired with science and nutrition.

Starting back in 2005, we at Rouxbe had a dream – a dream to build and deliver a world-class, cost-effective and approachable cooking solution that will transform lives across the planet through food and cooking. Since then we’ve invested several million dollars in the world’s largest inventory of premium instructional cooking content. We’ve built a powerful teaching platform. We’ve attracted over 120,000 students from 180 countries. All this work was just a prelude to the feature presentation – a product and service that will educate and empower anyone, of any age, to cook their way to better health.

Today we take a GIANT leap forward with the introduction of our formal medical and wellness advisory board. Some of the world’s leading medical and nutrition experts have joined forces with Rouxbe to pair food and cooking with science and nutrition.

“Food can be an extremely powerful tool in preventing, managing, and even reversing some of the world’s most prevalent diseases. As physicians, we can make dietary recommendations but few patients actually know how to cook the ingredients we prescribe. Rouxbe brings the missing ingredient to the table,” says Dr. Scott Stoll.

Coming in early 2014, Rouxbe will be releasing a new series of condition-specific cooking courses that physicians can prescribe to their patients. Patients (and anyone looking to improve their health) can follow the guidance of expert chefs and physicians to cook and eat their way to better health.

Welcome to all of our new advisory board members. We are deeply honored to have you join our team.

Best Regards,

The Rouxbe Team.

p.s. Please note, we are still actively seeking new advisors to expand our team, including a leading medical / nutrition expert(s) in woman’s health and a registered dietician(s). Preference will go to candidates with clinical research background and to those who believe passionately that food is one of the most powerful preventative and prescriptive forms of medicine.
