Karen Karp has joined the advisory board of the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University in New Orleans, La.
Karen Karp & Partners has been engaged to complete a $400,000 grant proposal to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, at their request, to expand the Goldring Center program nationally.
The Goldring Center was founded by Dr. Timothy S. Harlan, MD, FACP, assistant dean for Clinical Services at Tulane University Medical School in New Orleans, who serves as executive director of the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine.
Dr. Harlan created the curriculum at the Goldring Center, where medical students, doctors in CME courses, culinary students, and community members learn about nutrition and culinary medicine.
Dr. Harlan’s experience in the field as a former chef, as a practicing internist who attended medical school at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, where he also pursued his residency, and as a medical educator, has made the Goldring Center an innovator in the field of culinary medicine.
The curriculum that Dr. Harlan created at the Goldring Center has been licensed by 20 institutions of higher learning, including by the new culinary medicine program that KK&P helped develop at NorthWest Arkansas Community College.
Additionally, Dr. Harlan has participated in the last two James Beard Foundation Food Conferences in collaboration with Karen Karp. In 2015, he spoke about “A Doctor’s Prescription for Wellness,” which can be viewed here.
