NUTRIGENOMIC STRATEGIES FOR DEPRESSION & CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE

A brief review of the history and science of genomics. Two case studies are then used to illustrate the role of genes related to oxidative stress and inflammation in depression and cardiovascular disease. An introduction to culinary genomics and discussion of culinary solutions is based on one of the case histories.

Genomic Medicine Approach to Cardiovascular Disease

A Genomic Medicine Approach to Cardiovascular Disease,
When 53 year-old Sherry’s elevated cholesterol did not respond to dietary changes, genomic testing provided the answers. We’ll walk you through the interplay between genes and lipoprotein metabolism, and demonstrate how genomic analysis illuminated the underlying causes of Sherry’s elevated cardiovascular disease risk. You’ll learn how this process enabled precise recommendations for the dietary and lifestyle changes needed to reduce that risk.

DIFFICULTY: INTERMEDIATE
1 hour recorded webinar

 

Longevity & Vitality

The science behind unusual vitality and longevity in populations of two Mediterranean islands, and how genomic medicine may be playing a role. Discussion of interplay between genes, diet and lifestyle, and how nutrigenomic compounds in regional foods impact genes.

DIFFICULTY: INTERMEDIATE
This online course consists of two 70 minute sessions

 

 

ADVANCED CE COURSES FOR PROFESSIONAL MEMBERS

*This course is preapproved for 2 CPEs by CDR. Genoma International is an approved CPE Accredited Provider for continuing education credits for registered dietitians through CDR. All other health professionals please check with your credentialing or licensing boards to see if you can apply these credits to your continuing education requirements.

Biochemistry: The Bridge Between Genomics and Functional Nutrition (CE)

Here’s a different look at the missing ingredient needed to truly understand genomics. Presented in the context of clinical application, you’ll learn the biochemistry that ties together genomics and functional nutrition.

In this course, you’ll gain an appreciation for the role of biochemistry and how it informs functional nutritional recommendations, how genomic testing is the bridge to understanding a person’s unique biochemistry, and ultimately enables personalization of nutritional interventions. We’ll start with monogenic examples of biochemical pathways, and move into more complex polygenic systems.

DIFFICULTY: INTERMEDIATE
This online course consists of 2 parts with four 25-minute sessions

 

COST: $19.95
