New Vegan Diets 101 Course (Health Professionals Earn Credit!)
|July 11, 2011|
I’ve recently been on the road answering your questions about plant-based diets during my 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart book tour. Now, there’s another new PCRM educational resource that will educate you on the health benefits of a vegan diet. Vegan Diets 101 is an hour-long video presentation by PCRM director of nutrition education Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., that is followed by a test at NutritionCME.org. Watch the presentation to learn:
- the definition of a vegan diet;
- how a vegan diet affects cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other health conditions;
- how a vegan diet provides all of the nutrients you need, including protein, essential fatty acids, iron, zinc, calcium, vitamins D and B12;
- the facts about soy; and more.
You don’t have to be a health care professional to watch Vegan 101—but if you are, the presentation’s worth 1.0 contact hour for nurses, dietitians, and physicians.
