Rani Polak

As founder of the CHEF Coach program at the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, I believe that health coaching is essential to the success of culinary medicine. Culinary coaching can help clients set culinary goals and improve behaviors by supporting clients while making simple changes in their own kitchens. At the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine, we strongly believe that culinary medicine programs deliver valuable patient education and culinary skills that help clients enjoy a healthy kitchen and a healthy lifestyle.
