Nutrition Labels 101: Understanding the labels on your food

November 17, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dr. Raquel Harrison KvnC2e.tmp

What do food labels really tell you? Dr. Raquel Harrison (MD, FACEP, dipABLM), dual board certified in emergency medicine and lifestyle medicine, presents a thorough and demystifying overview of food labels. In addition to protein, fat, or carbohydrate percentage, labels tell us about sodium content, sugar and much more. And, what about nutrition in your fruits and vegetables, which don’t have labels? Start eating healthier with these easy tips!
With over 12 years of experience working in large urban emergency departments, Dr. Harrison has been heavily impacted by how often lifestyle choices result in visits to the hospital. Leveraging years working in education as an assistant professor and assistant residency director at Yale School of Medicine, she now directs her passion for teaching towards educating others about lifestyle medicine and its critical role in preventing and reversing diseases.
