Nutrition plays a vital role in our overall health, and has the power to help prevent or delay the progression of chronic diseases such as dementia, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, arthritis and cancer.
So many messages exist about food and nutrition, and it’s hard to know what to believe and what to apply to ourselves or our loved ones. This webinar provides nutrition guidance for three leading chronic diseases that affect individuals in our country. The discussion covers barriers to eating well, opportunities to improve one’s diet, and the impact of nutrient-rich foods and eating patterns on those living with dementia, hypertension and diabetes.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Identify key components of a nutrient-rich eating pattern.
- Identify opportunities for improving one’s diet to help prevent or delay the progression of chronic diseases.
- Identify food examples of key nutrients to incorporate into one’s eating pattern to help mitigate progression of certain diseases.
