Greek Physician Hippocrates once said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food.” It has become increasingly clear that there is no more important way to approach health: doctors need to care about food. We need to care about where it comes from, and how our patients are getting it. Today we speak with John Piotti of the Maine Farmland Trust and Ted Quaday of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association about these very issues.
As a radio show host and wellness editor for Maine magazine, I have had many fascinating conversations with our state’s creative and business leaders. This has provided me with an education that most physicians cannot access. I have especially enjoyed interacting with entrepreneurs such as Ben Shaw of Vets First Choice and Andrea King of Aristelle. From them I’ve learned that doing things differently is both possible and sustainable. This is a great lesson for those of us who hope to move forward successfully within the medical field.
