8/9 CHEF JASON DADY, LA FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL, DR. DANA COHEN, ZIKA 101

CHEF JASON DADY FROM JASON DADY RESTAURANT GROUP - TALKS ABOUT HIS APPEARANCES AT THE UPCOMING LA FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL

Since 2001, Texas native Jason Dady has aimed to raise the bar of dining in San Antonio, TX, to match the other elements of what the top tourist destination has to offer. He works beyond the role of restaurant owner to create a tight-knit bond with his team and the local community with Jason Dady Restaurants. His accolades include: “Best Chef San Antonio” by San Antonio Current and San Antonio Magazine, “40 Under 40 Rising Star” in the San Antonio Business Journal, a StarChefs Rising Star Restaurateur Award, CultureMap’s 2016 Tastemaker Award for “Chef of the Year,” and he has been honored as a James Beard semifinalist.

Dady opened The Lodge Restaurant of Castle Hills in 2001, featuring one of the city’s first tasting menus, followed by the modern American cuisine at BIN 555 Restaurant & Wine Bar in 2004. He then refocused on returning to his affinity for fine Italian cuisine, with the launch of  Tre Trattoria—now  his  flagship—in  2007, initiating the movement for restaurants in San Antonio to create handmade pasta. His current concepts include the Northern Italian, Tre Enoteca (2015); an award-winning family-friendly Texas pit ‘cue Two Bros BBQ Market (2008); and B&D Ice House (2014); along with  DUK Truck, a mobile kitchen. Dady introduced the coastal seafood-centric Shuck Shack in July 2015, a spot where thoughtfully approachable food and family fun collide. Next up for Dady is a second Two Bros BBQ Market, slated for early 2017.

INTERNAL AND INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE SPECIALIST DR. DANA COHEN – ZIKA 101 

**ZIKA AND WEST NILE ALERT**
There hasn’t been a travel advisory in the continental United States since polio but now with the outbreak of Zika in Florida we have one, and mosquito bites are inciting fear among many Americans.  According to a recent survey by WebMD, people are more concerned about mosquitoes this year than in past years and are planning to take additional steps to prevent mosquito bites. When asked which diseases spread by mosquitoes were of the most concern, 67 percent said Zika and 60 percent said West Nile.  Both are a problem, but what do we really know about mosquitoes, what attracts them and what viruses they are carrying that we should be most concerned about?

Dr. Dana Cohen, M.D., is a nationally renowned internal and integrative medicine specialist who says while Zika is capturing most of the public’s attention, it’s not the only virus mosquitos spread this time of year and that there are even more dangerous mosquito-borne diseases we need to protect ourselves from of such as West Nile, which has now been confirmed in almost every U.S. state.
Cohen will explain to your audience the signs and symptoms of mosquito-borne diseases from chikungunya, West Nile and Zika virus and practical prevention steps to keep you calm, as well as five things that can make you a mosquito magnet and what steps to take to minimize your exposure to bites.

MINIMIZE YOUR EXPOSURE  
What attracts mosquitoes to some and not others?  Studies show that mosquitoes find you as targets more easily by:

  • Carbon Dioxide: the more you exhale the easier you are to find 
  • Body Heat: the more you move around the more heat you create 
  •  Alcohol: may cause your skin to emit a chemical that could attract mosquitoes; but more realistically, it can also increase your body heat that is certainly a magnet; 
  • Sweat: mosquitoes love moisture so perspiration makes for the perfect target; 
  • Genes: (thanks mom and dad) not much you can do about the scent your body gives off through sweat but certain skin secretions can cause an attraction – It was recently refuted that mosquitoes are attracted to certain blood types – so cross that off your worry list! 

ABOUT THE DOCTOR  
Dana Cohen, MD, is a nationally renowned internal and integrative medicine specialist whose multi-disciplinary approach has helped treat thousands of patients using a variety of conventional and complementary therapies. In practice for nearly two decades, Cohen trained under the late Dr. Robert Atkins, author of the iconic, “Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution,” and Dr. Ronald L. Hoffman, a pioneer of integrative medicine and founder of the Hoffman Center in New York City. Cohen was certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in 1998, and was appointed to the Board of Directors of the American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM), the leading voice of integrative medicine for more than 1,500 MD, DO, ND and master-level health care providers, where she currently serves as advisor to the Board of Directors and advisor to the education committee. Through ACAM, she also developed an integrative medicine boot camp for practitioners. Cohen’s passion for integrative medicine stems from her belief that medicine is an art, and a patient-centered, holistic approach is the vital first step on the path to overall health and wellness. She has helped thousands of patients, on the verge of giving up hope, find relief by restoring their well being. Cohen’s practice emphasizes the individual, and she has helped countless patients limit their dependence on prescription medications by harnessing the power of diet, nutritional supplementation and lifestyle changes to find wellness. Cohen earned her medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine and completed a three-year internal medicine residency at Albany Medical Center and was board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in 1998.
