Pumpkin curry, citrus caprese and fire roasted tomato bisque were on the menu at the College of Medicine’s Dean Society holiday event held December 6.
Dr. Jacque Nyenhuis, a specialist in culinary medicine and assistant professor of internal medicine, prepared each course with a healthy cooking demonstration and talked about the nutritional benefits of the foods being served. It was all part of an “improving health” theme as attendees got to see and taste festive foods that are also good for you.
They also got a sneak peek at the new UCF Lake Nona Cancer Center (formerly the the Sanford Burnham Prebys research institute) which UCF took over December 1. The center will be part of the university’s emerging Academic Health Sciences Center and will provide clinical and basic cancer research and are for patients under one roof.
The Dean’s Society is a special group of people with a strong dedication to support of the College of Medicine through their personal involvement and annual contributions to the Dean’s Fund for Medical Excellence.
