Invest your health and the health of those in your care with evidence-based nutrition science from UT faculty experts.

Have you found yourself unprepared for a nutrition conversation with a patient? You’re not alone—a recent study found that across the globe medical school graduates are not supported with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to integrate nutrition into patient care.1

Despite climbing rates of disease related to diet, healthy eating remains a source of confusion among most Americans, and low levels of nutrition knowledge among healthcare professionals persist. 

In an era when diet is just as important as medications, only one in five American medical schools require nutrition in their coursework. And, while research shows that nutrition interventions both prevent and manage diseases like diabetes and heart disease, it’s a medical reality that these interventions aren’t translated into medical practice.2

That’s why we’re announcing a new Nutrition Continuing Education Series for practicing physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners to earn continuing medical education credits by learning about nutrition. Starting with a molecular understanding of nutrients and building toward the practical knowledge of nutritious eating in everyday life, we’ll give you the latest, evidence-based nutritional science to help you answer your and your patients’ nutrition questions. 

In a time when investing in health has never been more important, join our expert faculty as they help you take control of your health and the health of your patients through nutrition. We’ll unveil how nutrition helps fight disease, boosts the microbiome, your health from birth through adulthood, and more. Register now to save your seat.
