Michael Crupain, MD, MPH is a physician board certified in Preventive Medicine. Michael grew up in the New York area and attained his undergraduate degree at Duke University. Following college, he attended New York Medical College and completed two years of a Neurosurgical residency before joining a biomedical entrepreneurial venture. None of this, however, allowed him to focus as much time as he wanted on one of his other passions: food. Michael is passionate about the Slow Food Mission and served on the Board of Slow Food NYC from 2009 to 2010 before moving to Baltimore to complete a residency in Preventive Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. After completing his training, Michael took a job at Consumer Reports, where he is currently the Director of Food Safety testing at the Consumer Reports Food Safety and Sustainability Center. In addition Michael teaches undergraduate and graduate courses at Johns Hopkins University and cooks just about everyday. Michael re-joined the Slow Food NYC board in 2014.
