Teaching Healthy Ways To Doctors in the Kitchen

By MELANIE GRAYCE WEST


Thirteen of Lenox Hill Hospital's doctors-in-training gather for one more class at the end of another long day of lectures and rounds: How to peel onions and chop garlic.

It's a cooking class, and the organizers hope that it helps teach young doctors how to plan and cook nutritious meals so they can better advise patients on healthy eating.
