About his revival foods project


“My goal is to learn from cancer patients from other immigrant communitie­s and the food cultures they come from to create a database of healing cuisine from around the world—culturally significan­t food, recipes, and preparatio­ns that are not only nutritious but also bring curative comfort to the spirits of those who are suffering,” Raghavan says.

“We know that the availabili­ty of satisfying, appealing, and familiar comfort food can have a sizable impact on a patient’s motivation to eat—especially when side effects disrupt the appetite. I aim to build a robust collection of recovery foods that will assist and inspire hospitals and health care settings to expand their menus.”
