Minnesota has the largest Somali population in the United States. Thus, students in the state’s medical schools are likely exposed to Somali patients during their training. We assessed baseline knowledge of and attitudes about Somali patients among students at one medical school in the state. We then exposed those students to an educational intervention and reassessed their knowledge and attitudes afterward. We found students’ baseline knowledge was poor (65% of questions answered correctly, on average), but improved (80% answered correctly, on average) post-intervention...

Communication, once thought of as a soft skill for physicians, is now recognized as an essential skill. This article asserts that listening is the foundation of good communication and that all physicians can become better listeners if they have the desire to improve and are intentional about how they approach listening. The authors share five strategies to help physicians improve their skills: listening with curiosity, reflective listening, empathic listening, listening for discrepancies and listening in silence...

Students in U.S. medical schools spend little time learning about nutrition as it relates to health and disease. As a result, they lack important skills needed to care for themselves and their patients. To close this gap in their knowledge, instructors from the University of Minnesota created a course, “Food Matters for Doctors,” that combines didactic learning about practical topics related to food and nutrition with hands-on experience in the kitchen. They piloted the course in the spring of 2016. This article describes the course and changes in students’ knowledge and abilities before and after completing it...

REVIEW
James J Dinicolantonio, Zoë Harcombe, James H O'Keefe
The updated 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, published in January 2016, have stirred much controversy since the advisory report first appeared. Several important changes have been made, with some recommendations having greater scientific evidence for their support than others. The focus of this review is to discuss specific recommendations from the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans that lack sound scientific evidence; these include: 1) Allowing approximately half of all grains to be refined; 2) The continued recommendations for fat-free or low-fat dairy and limitation of saturated fat intake to <10% of calories; 3) Sodium intake < 2,300 mg/day; and 4) Consumption of up to 27 g/day of “oils” (high in polyunsaturated fat or monounsaturated fat)...

Patients frequently note adverse food reactions and report significant food restrictions as a result. Physicians need to consider the nutritional consequences and necessity of such voluntary dietary limitations. They also should consider adverse food reactivity in their differential diagnosis for many frequently seen concerns. This article describes a three-step process for assessing a patient’s potential for true adverse food reactivity. Readers will note the significant contributions nutritionists and dieticians can offer as team members...

As we started planning this issue on food and nutrition, we kept hearing about the importance of cooking. If physicians are going to be credible when talking to patients about healthy eating, they ought to know something about making a healthy meal, right? They might even want to share a recipe. We know many physicians and medical students like to cook, and we thought it would be fun to find out what they are making. So we asked you to share your favorite healthy recipes with us. The following are a few that we received...

As part of its legislative mandate, the Minnesota Department of Health's Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) is required to study and report on the state's medical cannabis program. This article describes preliminary findings from the OMC's research about who is using the program and whether patients and their certifying health care practitioners are noticing benefits and harms.
