Nutrition is a central pillar through all phases of cancer treatment. In this interactive course, you will learn foundational information about the role of nutrition in cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship. Healthy and early nutrition interventions are fundamental to improving outcomes for patients with cancer. When patients become malnourished, they are less likely to receive their prescribed oncology treatment which may reduce the efficacy of treatment and lead to worsened clinical and prognostic outcomes.
Numerous studies have linked nutritional factors with the risk for developing different types of cancers, risk for recurrence, and likelihood of survival. A personalized nutrition cancer plan aims to minimize side effects from cancer treatments, achieve and maintain a healthy body weight, enhance quality of life, and prevent or correct nutritional deficiencies. Recent research has also demonstrated how various nutrients (macro, micro and phytonutrients) play a key role in preserving and augmenting various aspects of cellular immune function and reducing inflammatory mediators.
"Personalized Nutrition in Primary Care 2022: Nutrition in Cancer Prevention, Treatment and Survivorship" is a live 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 oncology that can translate to clinical practice. Participants will learn how to formulate personalized nutrition recommendations to support oncology care.

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.
