Dr. Aaron Levy has been a practicing physician with Kaiser Permanente in Northern California for more than 18 years. After majoring in Philosophy at Haverford College in Pennsylvania he was torn between pursuing his love of cooking and a life in Medicine. Hoping to one day do both, he attended UCLA School of medicine and trained in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. His training included research experience in stomach emptying and inflammatory bowel diseases. Over the past few years, his interest in the link between nutrition and disease has grown and this has enabled him to combine his passions for patient care and cooking.
