Unique as a Fingerprint: Research Updates in Precision Nutrition


Description: Recent research has uncovered profound variability in the ways individuals respond to meals, supplements, and nutrition interventions. Therese personalized responses have prompted talk of precision nutrition-the tailoring of a unique nutrition prescription that might be most effective for each patient. Is precision nutrition ready for use? Tune into this webinar to review some of the most recent research in precision nutrition including topics of blood glucose response, probiotic supplements, metabotyping, and nutrigenomic testing.


At the completion of this webinar the participant will be able to:

  • Discuss the concept of intra- and inter-variability as it applies to nutrition interventions
  • Evaluate the strengths and limitations of precision-nutrition research
  • Utilize evidence-based research to apply concepts of precision nutrition to patient care
