A Cookin' Docs production brought to you by the University of Arizona Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Watermark Retirement Communities' Hacienda at the River:

Skip the salt shaker and discover how to make low-sodium meals that please the palate. Join us for our groundbreaking Docs in the Kitchen program, created in partnership with the University of Arizona, as we invite Gastroenterology and Hepatology Chief at the University of Arizona Dr. Juanita Merchant, MD, PhD, and Director of the University of Arizona Nephrology Fellowship Director Dr. Amy Sussman, along with Hacienda at the River’s very own Chef David Sullivan for a fun and informative cooking demonstration.

Find out how maintaining a low-sodium diet can help kidney disorders, high blood pressure, and heart disease while learning how to keep things flavorful with savory spices and cooking techniques. We’ll share small bites and wine as well as a plated dinner, so bring your appetite for culinary adventure!

Cost per person: $100 – of which, $70 qualifies as a tax-deductible donation. This event is a fundraiser with a portion of the ticket price going to the University of Arizona Foundation and net proceeds benefiting the University of Arizona Gastroenterology and Nephrology programs. Payments are processed by the University of Arizona Foundation.
