Personal bio
Maya Adam MD has been teaching at Stanford University since 2009. She received her BA in Human Biology from Stanford before studying medicine at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Prior to her post-secondary studies, she spent 10 years as a professional ballet dancer with the State Theater of Saxony in Germany. At the Stanford School of Medicine, Adam teaches courses on child health and nutrition and creates online educational content for the Re-imagining Medical Education Project, led by Charles Prober MD, Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education. In 2013, Adam created the free, massive open online course Stanford Child Nutrition and Cooking, a public health education outreach effort that has reached more than 230,000 international students. In 2016, she launched a second massive open online course called Stanford Introduction to Food and Health. Since 2014, Adam has been applying new teaching technologies being developed at Stanford to the creation of digital teaching tools designed to support the work of international community health workers. The resulting Stanford Health Outreach App is now being used by community health organizations in South Africa and Guatemala and the teaching videos associated with the app have been translated into Xhosa, Spanish and Hindi. Adam is also the founder of a non-profit organization called Just Cook for Kids and the author of Food Love Family: A Practical Guide to Child Nutrition.
