Personalizing Nutrient Requirements and Resolving Nutritional Paradoxes Using Genomic Medicine

**TO ACCESS EACH LESSON, SCROLL DOWN AND CLICK ON THE INDIVIDUAL LESSON LINKS TO VIEW**

This course provides an in-depth approach to nutritional biochemistry of key nutrient pathways, the impact of gene SNPs, culinary genomic solutions and clinical applications.

You have the option to earn up to 10 CPE credits* for this course.

Objectives:

  • Monogenic vs Polygenic approach.
  • Key Nutrient Pathways: Vitamins A, C, D, E; B vitamins (including folate/homocysteine cycles); CoQ10; Omega fatty acids; Selenium; Calcium.
  • Micronutrients, Genes and Examples of Nutrigenetic and Nutrigenomic Interventions.
  • Laboratory Testing and Biomarkers.
  • Case Studies.
  • Applying Culinary Genomics and Culinary Translation to Optimizing Nutrition.
  • Food-Gene Roadmaps You Can Use in Your Practice.

Each Section contains 3-5 questions. To qualify for CPE credits, you must pass each Section quiz with a score of 80% or better. Because critical thinking is an important skill for using genomics successfully in practice, some of the questions may be designed to assess how well you can integrate and extrapolate the information presented. You may take each Section quiz as many times as you need to master the material.

The instructors for this program are Joe Veltmann, PhD FAAIM DCCN; Roberta Kline MD; and Amanda Archibald RD.
