Medicine in Our Backyard: Let Food Be Your Medicine

It’s clear that nutrition plays a significant role in your weight and energy levels, but does what you eat really affect your overall health? Dr. Miki Purnell, a board-certified UCI Health specialist in family medicine and integrative health at the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute, views food as medicine. She will explain the connection between nutritious food and mindful eating that can lead to a healthier lifestyle.

The Medicine in Our Backyard series is sponsored by the Newport Beach Public Library Foundation in collaboration with UCI Health.
