Celebrating Launch Your Dream Book: Children’s and Family Books

It’s partially because most physicians don’t have the time, resources, or training to help patients change their habits and lifestyle. Only 25% of medical schools require students to take a dedicated nutrition class, and doctors spend less than 3% of sick visits discussing nutrition.
