To help teach patients healthy lifestyle skills, residents at the Yale School of Medicine are spending time on a farm to gain experience harvesting and preparing fresh produce. As part of the school’s Community Engagement Curriculum program, residents spend half a day at Yale’s West Campus Urban Farm receiving an introduction to nutrition guidelines before picking ingredients for a healthy meal.

The goal of the program is for residents to be more comfortable educating patients about healthy lifestyles skills and provide user friendly information.

“We often fall into giving lifestyle and diet recommendations without having the tools to provide specific programming, rules and interventions for our patients,” says chief resident Sanjeet Baidwan.
