“This course should be mandatory for anyone pursuing personalized medicine: Genomics demystified. This course looks at the impact of genomics on our biochemical soup–the molecular basis of human physiology. With well-considered scientific evidence and a digestible review of biochemistry, Joe Veltmann and Bobbi Kline carefully provide information aimed to generate practical, client-specific lifestyle and nutritional prescriptions that up- or down-regulate genes and molecular pathways to promote wellness.

What an awesome course!! An added bonus is the genomic test panel each participant gets of themselves. Highly recommended!”

-Mary Jo Fishburn MD

“I’ve really enjoyed the course thus far. I have learned SO much already and believe this is truly nutrition’s future. It is so hard being a practitioner and not having answers for clients desperately seeking them…and sending them back on the path of trial and error. Practicing nutrigenomics will not only provide precise recommendations for clients, but also a clearer path for practitioners.”

-Melissa Hehmann, RDN

You’ll be able to grasp the nuances and the implications of our genomic test results using an advanced, polygenic approach within a clinical model, addressing the conditions that underlie most health and disease processes.

Weekly online classes will be held Thursday evenings at 5pm PT/ 6pm MT/ 7pm CT/ 8pm ET.

Training Program:  $1800 (payment plan also available)

Includes:

  • 80 hours of online instruction plus addition learning integration, with 100 CPEs for RDNs*
  • One Genoma International Ultimate Wellness genomic test for optimal experiential learning.
  • Online Facebook community
  • Additional bonuses worth thousands of dollars – special discounts, GENESIS MatrixTM CHQ, and more. 
  • Does NOT include Certification. See below for Add-On Certification Option.

With a clinically focused approach, you will learn:

  • The history and science behind genomic testing.
  • The applied biochemistry, cell biology, physiology, and nutrition science of each system.
  • Which genes are related to these systems, and how they impact functioning and outcomes.
  • Effective nutritional genomic and lifestyle interventions.
  • Culinary genomic strategies.
  • How to integrate genomic testing into a comprehensive health model.
  • How to create a successful genomic medicine or nutrition practice

Your instructors are clinicians with extensive backgrounds in nutrition science, genomics, the culinary arts, functional and integrative medicine, able to provide both scientific background and real-world clinical applications.
