Food As Medicine Screening At Omsi says
The Center for Disease Control reports that nearly half the population in the United States lives with at least one chronic disease. These diseases are the leading cause of death and disability and are the most costly and most preventable of all health conditions in the country.

Food As Medicine is a documentary made in Portland, Oregon that follows the growing movement of using food to heal chronic disease. The film follows the lives of three people just beginning to embark on healing. We see the dramatic positive impact these dietary changes have, but also the great challenges they face as they try to eat healthily in today’s food culture. As we all know, it’s not easy.

Join us in the Empirical Theater of OMSI for a viewing of the documentary and discussion following the film with interviewees, Drs. Julie Briley and Courtney Jackson of the Food As Medicine Institute at the National University of Natural Medicine. Tickets are $5.
