    The college of medicine would save more lives with better nutritional/lifesytle training to combat obesity for it's doctors than the current curriculum.

    Agree. Also how to encourage those to get shots for their children who are antivax because of more crazy conspiracy theories. But what does that have to do with the op?

    I went through the admissions process -- this article is a joke.

    This is more likely about teaching the social determinants of health, cultural humility and understanding how to treat patients of different cultures.

    White coats for black lives (national group), also promoted at where I attend.

    Most parents get their kids shots. If you are referring to the Covid shots…there is no and was no need for kids to ever take those shots. I feel bad for the parents who were tricked by the propaganda into having their kids take them.

    They teach these things lol. Nutrition/lifestyle isn't as simple as working out/eating healthy

    I remember when I was at UF. The school was paying smart minorities to go to school there. The school was under some sort of court order to admit more blacks. UFs solution was to pay blacks to go there instead of lowering standards.

    Why Medical Schools Need to Focus More on Nutrition

    During four years of medical school, most students spend fewer than 20 hours on nutrition. That’s completely disproportionate to its health benefits for patients.

    Focusing on nutrition is pretty worthless unless the medical system as a whole gears toward preventative medicine rather than treating already sick people for profit

    Arguably it’s the sort of thing that needs to be done through a public health awareness campaign (public health, a thing conservatives apparently loathe). This loathing of public health is not even a product of the anti-vaccine nuttery (although that’s the most recent tool these anti-govt folks grasped on to). It was already there, and this “anti-woke” in medical training is just another iteration on that. What are they against here? What is animating this “anti-woke” anger? The very idea of public health considering underserved communities… even on a conceptual level. Remember when Michelle Obama tried to campaign about healthier school lunches or the NYC efforts to tax the Big Gulp ? “Conservatives” basically said STFU snowflakes, our kids eat Pepperoni Pizza and 2L Coca Cola. FrEeDoMmmmm!

    It’s an issue kind of like smoking. Some people are just going to smoke no matter what anyone tells them. I don’t think training doctors is the problem here, it’s whether the patient is going to do anything regardless of how it’s presented to them.

    Just like budding fascists describe a dangerous “Antifa” movement they are opposing, so goes those “pro” types who fight “antiracists”

    Like I said, the Do Mo Harm website is full of outrage over medical schools across the country, including schools as high profile as UF.
    No telling why they decided to make the UF report a big deal.

    20 hours is a lot of time -- I don't think you realize how much shit you have to learn in 18 months. Nutrition has a stand alone module, but it is also tied in into a lot of different parts of the curriculum. What this article is seeming to miss is how nutrition/lifestyle is based on much more than knowledge of what I should/shouldn't eat and how much I should exercise. It doesn't consider adherence, the patients socioeconomic status -- eg where they live (are they in the middle of a food desert?). Sometimes people are overweight do to a disease or a medication or a mental health issue.

    So yes, nutrition/lifestyle is important but it is another empty talking point that can't be truly combated until you attack the underlying causes of these things.

    Come on now. We are the richest nation in the world. And we have the worst health lifestyle of any first world country. While there is some truth behind what you are saying. It sure feels like an excuse.

    The food industry along with public health has failed this country. The catch 22 of freedom and the amazing advancements in medicine has us in an odd situation where people want quick fixes which we can provide and are not willing to address the vices they enjoy so much.
