Event Overview:

Spend three days in the spring with us at Nutrition & Health: State of the Science and Clinical Applications, sharing nutrient-rich and tantalizing meals with like-minded learners in historic Boston, Massachusetts and gathering insights on nutrition, prevention and healthful living from internationally recognized researchers, clinicians, educators, authors and chefs.

What you will learn:

Tools to evaluate the latest research and diet trends

Nutrition recommendations for management of specific conditions

Social and political aspects of food and health

Designed for physicians, dietitians, nutritionists, nurses, chefs, pharmacists, naturopaths, and other healthcare professionals, the conference is also open to interested members of the public!

Attendee Information:

Our goal is to provide health practitioners with an understanding of the central role of nutrition in health and healing. To provide a scientific basis for the integration of nutrition and medicine in order to practice preventive and therapeutic nutritional medicine.

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
  • Analyze the behavioral aspects of diet and health and implications for patient care
