Why you should attend
Your patients increasingly call on your advice for diet and nutrition to promote good health and treat specific conditions. Proper diet is a fundamental building block to good health, yet many practitioners lack the basic expertise in nutrition to recommend dietary strategies to their patients.
To meet this growing need, this course will provide you with essential information on:
- Practical strategies for incorporating nutrition into your clinical practice
- Using diet to prevent illness
- Nutritional recommendations for management of specific conditions
- Tools to evaluate the latest nutrition research findings
- Social and political aspects of diet and health
The conference provides an overview and practical summary of the latest information on nutrition and health presented by leaders in scientific research, clinicians skilled in nutritional medicine, experts on food and agricultural policy, and innovative chefs.
What you will learn
Upon conclusion of this course, you will be able to:
- Incorporate nutritional information into clinical practice and advise patients about eating for optimum health as well as using dietary change as a therapeutic intervention
- Evaluate the benefits and risks of nutritional recommendations for specific health conditions through an analysis of the existing scientific and clinical evidence
- Recognize the emerging science on the impact of the microbiome on health and disease
- Describe current controversies and state of the science regarding carbohydrates, proteins and fats
- Understand the relationship of particular foods and nutritional components to mental health
- Identify the health value of specific nutrients and protective phytochemicals and evaluate dietary supplements
