Nutrition Professionals who want to provide personalized recommendations using genomic testing will want to view this webinar!

As nutrition professionals, we provide oodles of information about diet, nutritional supplements, exercise regimens and lifestyle choices. Providing personalized recommendations can be daunting because everyone is a unique human being based his/her genotype and what might work for one person may not work for another. Our genotype--the genes that make up our DNA code and provide the blueprint for the proteins our bodies need to function--can be difficult to decipher if we rely solely on a person's phenotype, traits or physical characteristics.

Hawthorn University’s Holistic Health and Nutrition Webinar Series welcomes Dr. Roberta Kline and Dr. Joe R. Veltmann for Part One of their two-part genomic testing series, Genomics: The Science and Application of Genomic Testing for Nutrition Professionals.

With the completion of the Human Genome Project and the advent of genomic testing, today there is a new tool in a nutrition professional's tool box to:

• provide personalized programs to nutritionally support a client during a disease process;
• use specific nutritional therapies to decrease the risk of chronic diseases as part of a disease-prevention program;
• understand the biochemistry behind your nutritional recommendations; and
• be part of the genomic revolution that is occurring in medicine, the nutritional sciences and across the entire spectrum of healthcare.

Part One discusses the science behind genomic testing and how best to interpret genomic results using real-life examples from our clinical files.

The first 10 minutes of this webinar feature our Book Nook segment where Paula Bartholomy and Hawthorn graduate Rande Freedman discuss the book The Hormone Secret by Tami Meraglia, MD.
