Presented by the MUIH Nutrition Department in partnership with Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association (MNDA), this symposium will focus on Nutritional Genomics in Clinical Practice. The field of nutrigenomics emphasizes the critical intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, and MUIH’s symposium will center specifically on translating nutrigenomics information for the clinician and clinical practice. Attendees will learn the science behind the field and gain practical skills to apply in their practice to meet the growing patient and client demand for information. A separate track will focus on Naturopathic Management of the Complex Patient and sessions will discuss topics such as chronic infections, digestive disorders, anxiety, pre-conception and conception.

Speakers include Leah Hollon ND, Liz Lipski PhD, Ginger Nash ND, Ralph Esposito ND, Anil Bajnath, MD, Tara Nayak ND, Eleonora Gafton, MS, Jessica Pizano, DCN,  Amanda Archibald RD, Chrissie Williamson DCN, Kevin Passero ND, Erin Kinney ND, Randy Gastwirt, ND, PhD, and Lindsey Berkson, DC.

This symposium is suitable for clinical nutritionists, MDs, NDs, other clinicians, academics, and students with an interest in nutritional genomics and clinical practice. Space is limited to 100 participants. 

The symposium will take place over three days on our campus in Laurel, Maryland – halfway between Baltimore and Washington, DC.  Light breakfast will be served on Saturday and Sunday and lunch on Saturday.

Nutritional genomics holds enormous potential for improvements in health care at the individual and population levels through the maintenance of health and the blocking and reversal of disease states. Nutrigenomics is at the intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, specifically how nutrients influence the genome and their relationship to health and wellness.

In partnership with Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association (MNDA), the MUIH Nutrition Department presented the 2018 Nutrition Symposium, Nutritional Genomics in Clinical Practice.

The field of nutrigenomics emphasizes the critical intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, and MUIH’s symposium centered specifically on translating nutrigenomics information for the clinician and clinical practice. These recorded presentations from the symposium will allow you to learn the science behind the field and gain practical skills to apply in practice to meet the growing patient and client demand for this information and treatment protocols.

Recorded presentations from the symposium include:

  • Tara Nayak: Introduction to Nutritional Genomics
  • Leah Hollon: What Do you Mean Curly Kale Made you Feel Worse?
  • Eleonora Gafton: The Science of Preserving Genomic Compounds in Cooking
  • Ralph Esposito: SNP Away Prostate Cancer: A Genomic Approach to Prostate Cancer

Offering Description:

Nutritional genomics holds enormous potential for improvements in health care at the individual and population levels through the maintenance of health and the blocking and reversal of disease states. Nutrigenomics is at the intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, specifically how nutrients influence the genome and their relationship to health and wellness. The emergence of this field parallels the emergence of the broader field of precision health care, which tailors health care approaches to individuals based on their unique genetic makeup. The American College of Nutrition forecasts nutritional genomics as the third hottest area of nutrition research for 2020.

Nutritional genomics is emerging as an essential part of health care as the scientifically-based role of nutrition in health and disease is increasingly understood and as the scope and precision of genomic technologies continues to evolve. Together, these have led to a need for well-educated professionals in nutrition and genomics, especially those with expertise at their intersection, in the expanding healthcare industry.

In partnership with Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association (MNDA), the MUIH Nutrition Department presented the 2018 Nutrition Symposium, Nutritional Genomics in Clinical Practice.

The field of nutrigenomics emphasizes the critical intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, and MUIH’s symposium centered specifically on translating nutrigenomics information for the clinician and clinical practice.
