Webinar: The Protein Needs of Older Adults

June 6, 2013

New evidence suggests that the current RDA for protein intake may be inadequate for older adults.

Join Sharon Palmer, RD, a contributing editor at Today’s Dietitian and author of The Plant-Powered Diet for a complimentary one-hour continuing education webinar, during which you will hear the latest on protein requirements, so that you can help your patients stay healthy and fit as they age. Joining Sharon for this presentation will be expert Jeannette Beasley, PhD, MPH, RD, assistant professor, department of epidemiology and population health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY.


This continuing education course is brought to you free of charge through the support of Daisy Brand.
