Nutritional Genomics is a complex and necessary part of our work in nutrition. RDs can no longer choose to exclude this knowledge if they want to practice effective integrative and functional nutrition. This presentation by Sheila Dean, DSc, RDN, LDN, CCN, CDE, IFMCP, on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, from 2-3pm ET, is an overview of what nutrigenomics entails and provides several common examples of how unique genes affect nutritional needs and how specific nutrients modulate genetic expression. The nutrigenetic testing landscape will also be discussed, and attendees will leave with a more thorough understanding of potential clinical implementations.
After completing this continuing education course, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Define nutritional genomics to the extent that it is understood at this time
- Identify how unique genes affect nutritional needs
- Identify how food affects the way unique genes express themselves
- Review a case study to see nutrigenomics in action
