The doctors of the future are lucky to have Nutritank fighting the battle to bring nutrition and lifestyle medicine education into medical schools. For all us current doctors, sadly we weren’t so fortunate and have to do some of the work ourselves! A Lancet Study (2019): (Nutrition in medical education: a systematic review  showed that nutrition education was insufficient globally. During my med school years I always had an interest in nutrition and lifestyle medicine I was disappointed by the lack of teaching in medical school. During medical school I would spend my spare time trying to find trustworthy sources of learning, but this was time consuming and difficult because I didn’t know where to start my search. There was also this idea among my peers that if it wasn’t on the curriculum, then we don’t need to learn it. How wrong we all were!! Nutrition and lifestyle medicine teaching is exactly what Medical School curriculums need. The first line management of chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease is lifestyle changes. By not having nutrition and lifestyle medicine teaching, most current doctors will not have the confidence to give counsel patients on these subjects.
