Overview

We find ourselves facing global epidemics of obesity and diabetes. To address these public health crises, we urgently need to explore innovative educational strategies for physicians and the general public. Physicians who eat a healthy, balanced diet and who understand what that entails, are more effective at counseling their patients to improve their health behaviors.

This CME activity provides a practical approach to supporting healthy eating for a variety of medical needs. Through the use of didactic videos, animated cases, and interactive activities course participants will gain proficiency in recommending well-established nutritional practices and assessing barriers to healthy eating for patients and physicians alike. By evaluating personal eating behaviors and barriers to healthy eating, physicians will emerge from the course better equipped to support sustainable positive change in their patients’ food choices while simultaneously having an opportunity to embark on optimizing their own nutritional health.

This course is intended for medical professsionals. I am not in the profession but it provided me with tools to look at my own nutrition and health. Great starting point. I enjoyed the course

The course is designed for professionals but also offers practical information for everyone who wants to improve their eating habit and overall health. There are useful tips easy to remember when choosing the food to eat, and it encourage people to cook more.
