Webinar: How to Support Your Immune System During a Pandemic (and Beyond)

March 17, 2021

Complimentary webinar on immune health

Everywhere you look there's information about how you can boost your immune system to stay healthy and ward off illnesses. Makes sense, since we're in the middle of a pandemic and stuck at home with time to read. But the fact vs. fiction minefield of “internet nutrition” and guru-based health advice makes it hard to sift through all the junk to find the gems of science.

When your patients and clients are reading online information about nutrition and immunity, it can feel like the game “Two Truths and a Lie” — you never know what to believe. Join Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, LDN, CSO, on Wednesday, March 17, 2021, from 2–3 PM ET, for a webinar that makes bringing the best and latest science-based recommendations to your clients simple, real, and fun.

Here's the truth: our immune system already knows what to do. It's incredibly sophisticated and complex. We just need to give it the optimal environment and fuel, then get out of the way and let it flourish!
 

 

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, nutrition professionals will be able to:

  1. Detail how lifestyle habits impact your immune system. 
  2. Understand and implement the components of a healthy, balanced diet that supports immunity, for yourself and your clients.
  3. Analyze the science of phytonutrients, gut health, vitamins, minerals, and intake relative to immunity, and make recommendations to your clients about what works and more importantly, what's safe.
