She shares what drew her to this field of medicine, how our diet is linked to our brain, and offers quick and easy recipes that can make a big difference for shift workers. She touches on foods that support your mental health, foods to support people going through fertility treatments, and discusses her new project: the first CME program in nutritional psychiatry with Mass General.
