The Southern Food & Beverage Museum, Eat Fit NOLA and The University of Queensland – Ochsner Clinical School have formed a new teaching partnership and monthly educational programs focusing on preventive health. Join a team of third and fourth year medical students, a chef and a nutritionist from Eat Fit NOLA in the Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air at SoFAB on the first Saturday of every month at 2 p.m. to learn more about different health topics

The October event has already taken place, but the Nov. 5 event — Magic Microbiome — will focus on what bacteria does for our bodies and how it affects our health. Then on Dec. 5, the Sugar Series will take a closer look at the glycemic index and how it affects your health. The series will continue in 2017.

Participation in the classes is free with museum admission ($10.50 for adults, $5.25 for seniors over 60 and free for museum members). 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., (504) 267-7490,
