The need for nutrition professionals is growing exponentially and will be one of the most sought after roles in the health industry. The webinar will show how our nutrition programs will prepare graduates to offer vital contributions to healthcare and play a key role in developing their field. The integrative and functional medical model with lifestyle changes has been shown in the literature over the past decades to be cheaper and more successful in the treatment of all chronic conditions. Additionally, with the onset of nutrigenomics, nutritional experts now have the ability through genetics to be on the same clinical and expert footing as the rest of the medical community. Through genetics, we can tell our clients exactly how to maximize their individual health through dietary choices and prevent, stagnate, and reverse many metabolic and familial diseases. We are on a verge of great change in this industry - the people have spoken and they are tired of being sick and tired. In this webinar, learn how you can be a critical part of the healthcare solution.
