Her lecture, From the Clinic to the Kitchen: A Journey of Finding One’s Own Wellness, explores how, in a time of increasing physician burnout, it is critical to focus on finding a path to self-care. She discovered, through her own experience of making over 1,000 loaves of bread over ten years, that one approach to self-care is creating a meaningful ritual in our lives. Her award-winning debut book, Braided: A Journey of a Thousand Challahs, not only recounts this experience, but also the importance of lifestyle modification in disease management - for ourselves as health care providers, and for our patients. Dr. Ricanati is currently a part-time physician volunteer at the Venice Family Clinic in Los Angeles, the city's largest outpatient institution for the under-insured. She has practiced at the NY-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center’s Center for Women’s Health, the Cleveland Clinic’s Women’s Health Center and was the founding medical director of the Wellness Institute’s Lifestyle 180 program with Michael Roizen, MD.

Cleveland Playhouse, The Outcalt Theatre
Join members of the African American Alumni Association for dinner in Downtown Cleveland. After dinner, the group will attend a performance of the play Pipeline at the historic Cleveland Playhouse.

But when a teacher’s questions push a button, Omari pushes back. An altercation ensues and Nya’s plans for Omari’s future begin to unravel. Pipeline is a compelling, must-see portrait of the systemic school-to-prison pipeline and the experience of being a parent of a young black man in America. The price of the event includes a ticket to the show only.
Dinner starts at 5:30 pm at Chicago's Chicken & Waffles located downtown Cleveland and will be at the expense of guests.
