Webinar: Nutrigenomics: Improve Health Outcomes and Increase Your Income
Nutrigenomics is the future of personalized medicine and health care professionals can use it to both improve patient health outcomes and satisfaction, as well as to increase revenue and build their businesses. There are several differences between medical genetics and nutrigenomics, and both understanding and implementing them in practice is of the utmost importance.
Join Ginger Hultin and Mascha Davis on Thursday, October 5, 2023, from 2-3 p.m. ET, for a webinar that will address foundational aspects of nutrigenomics and how genetic variants can be translated into creating positive health behavior changes. Learn to boost your business offerings and income with nutrigenomic testing and enhance your understanding of the role nutrigenomics plays in personalized wellness.
After attending this session, health care professionals should be able to:
- Define nutrigenomics and how it’s different from working with medical genetics.
- Explain the role of nutrigenomics in dietetics including current uses and limitations.
- List three genetic single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that dietitians can use to counsel clients on to create positive behavior change.
- Describe three ways that RDs can incorporate nutrigenomics in their practices, support their client's health, and build their business.
