The FAME Educator Training is a 3-day event: Friday – Sunday, April 24-26, 2020 | 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. each day
Location: Helfgott Research Institute of NUNM, 2220 SW First Avenue Portland, Map and directions
The Food as Medicine Everyday (FAME) Educator Training will prepare qualified educators to successfully implement a 12-week community-based whole-foods nutrition program: the Food as Medicine Everyday (FAME) series. Because a foundation in nutrition is required to teach the FAME series,* those eligible to be FAME Educators are licensed naturopathic physicians, masters of science in nutrition practitioners, as well as other healthcare providers vetted and approved by the Food As Medicine Institute (FAMI). Please contact Nutrition Coordinator Julie Marks at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm if you are eligible to register.
*This training is not designed for community members and does not teach a foundation in nutrition science. The FAME Educator Training is designed to teach qualified health professionals to teach the FAME series in their own communities. If you are a community member looking for cooking or nutrition education, please click here for more information about our Food as Medicine Everyday (FAME) workshops available.
**NUNM students may take this training if they are a graduating ND or MScN in 2020.
Please visit the FAME Educator Training Program page for more information about what it means to be FAME Educator.
