Course Description

Nutrition is the cornerstone of health and maintaining quality of life. Diet and lifestyle are central to preventing and treating many common conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia. Recent research has demonstrated that more than 80% of patients with dementia also have cardiovascular disease or diabetes and excess body fat. We understand not only that each person’s genes are different, but that the metabolism of foods is also highly variable. This observation has given rise to the concept of personalized nutrition and the development of tools to optimize individual dietary recommendations. “Personalized Nutrition in Primary Care” is a one-day CME course that offers providers of varying backgrounds a chance to understand how genes, metabolic biomarkers of disease risk, microbiome, physical activity, and body composition can be utilized to formulate personalized nutritional solutions for disease prevention and treatment. Experts in the field will review current evidence and best practices.
