FAME Educator Training – Fall 2020

October 2, 2020, 8:00 amNovember 15, 2020, 5:00 pm

The Fall 2020 FAME Educator Training is an online, 6-week, work-at-your-own-pace training: October 2 – November 15, 2020


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 jmarks@nunm.edu 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.

Please visit the FAME Educator Training Program page for more information about what it means to be FAME Educator.
