Nutrition is the central pillar of good health and quality of life. The global pandemics of viral infection, obesity, and malnutrition have put a spotlight on the important role that nutrition plays in supporting the immune system. The public demand for nutrition information as it relates to immunity has increased and patients regularly turn to their trusted primary care providers for information and advice.
New discoveries in nutritional science have defined the role of the microbiome in inflammation and common age-related chronic conditions including obesity through its interaction with the gut-associated immune system. Recent research has also demonstrated how various nutrients (macro, micro, and phytonutrients) play an essential role in preserving and augmenting various aspects of cellular immune function and reducing inflammatory mediators.
"Personalized Nutrition in Primary Care 2021: The Essential Role of Nutrition in Immunity" is a live virtual CME course for health care providers in the primary care setting. This event is an opportunity to learn from experts in the field about nutrition and immunity that can translate to clinical practice. Participants will learn how to formulate personalized nutrition recommendations to support optimal immunity.
