This course was born out of a need to bridge a gap between inadequate nutrition education in medical school and the desire of many practicing doctors to give good nutrition advice. For physicians and the public alike, nutrition information can be confusing and conflicting, and often comes in a one-size-fits-all format. It was designed by a Registered Dietitian turned OB/GYN and Culinary Medicine specialist. She has taken the methods of nutrition assessment and counseling she honed as a dietitian and formatted them to fit the context of a busy physician visit.
This course will review the evidence behind common sense nutrition advice and highlight effective counseling methods to give you, the physician, the confidence to provide personalized nutrition recommendations.
