A complimentary webinar sponsored by the Beef Checkoff, “Pulse Check on Cardiovascular Health: A Current Look at Nutrition Strategies” will be held Tuesday, January 24, 2017 12:00-1:00 CST.
From the invite:
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major public health concern, and diet is believed to play an important role in mediating CVD risk. This webinar will discuss the history and impact of scientific research on nutrition recommendations for a healthy heart and will share practical tips for developing nutrition strategies for treating dyslipidemia today.
As a health professional, you are in a unique position to educate Americans on the importance of diet and nutrition for better health. By providing perspectives on the latest scientific evidence, you can help people weigh the risks and benefits of individual food choices when it comes to reducing CVD risk and improving overall health.
Join Michael Davidson, MD, FACC, FACP, FNLA, Clinical Professor and Director of Preventive Cardiology at the Pritzker School of Medicine, and Jan Tilley, MS, RD of Jan Tilley & Associates as they review the research and provide guidance on translating the research into practical dietary approaches for treating various forms of dyslipidemia.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
Provide context to the dialogue on the relationship between diet – specifically red meat consumption – and dyslipidemia
Translate data and evidence-based research into heart-healthy nutrition recommendations to patients and clients
- Educate peers and consumers on the scientific evidence related to beef’s role in a heart healthy diet
