MedChef is an organization of healthcare students and professionals who are committed to fighting preventable diseases through learning the art of plant-based cooking and sharing that knowledge with the community.
Presented in a series of private cooking classes called The MedChef’s Kitchen, healthcare students and professionals learn the importance for providers to pursue personal health and become role models to their community. In this organization, we strive to change the landscape of a patient’s health through our example.
We were honored to host a presentation by Alexis at our September 9 Plant Strong Club meeting and her father was kind enough to create a video and post it to YouTube: https://youtu.be/4YPiQH0P5ME . Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheMedChefs/
Hi! I’m Alexis Jae Brown and am currently in school to become a medical physician and obtain my masters in Public Health, but I’m also a plant-based foodie and self proclaimed MedChef!
I have been eating a pescatarian diet (that’s no meat other than fish) for over 12 years and after years of cooking classes, internships and old-fashioned experimentation, I’ve learned so much about preparing mostly plant-based meals. As I’ve experienced better health personally and started medical school, I decided to base my future career on bettering the health of my patients with not just medications but through an emphasis on lifestyle changes (i.e. diet, exercise, and stress management).
The Aha! Moment
I started the MedChef organization after realizing many of my fellow med school peers were intrigued by my mostly plant-based lifestyle and had desires of their own to begin a more healthful life. I then began inviting classmates into my kitchen to learn how to prepare simple meals easily and on a budget.
How We’ve Evolved
Interest in these private cooking classes increased so much that I called it The MedChef’s Kitchen and made it an official reoccurring cooking series which includes workshops led by healthcare professionals, hands on cooking demonstrations, culinary tips and more!
Who We Serve
The MedChef’s Kitchen cooking series has a target audience of current and budding healthcare professionals who are interested in living a healthier lifestyle. However, the lessons learned in the kitchen are meant to share with the community.
