NutritionCME.org Helps Physicians Help Patients
March 7, 2012

NutritionCME.orgEighty-seven percent of medical students say their nutrition education is lacking, but NutritionCME.org is making up for lost time. PCRM’s dynamic, newly redesigned website helps health care professionals understand the latest plant-based nutrition research from leading health experts.

Our free site aims to equip an army of doctors, dietitians, and others with the knowledge they need to start a healthy diets revolution. We offer more than dozen video and text courses with recommendations that health care professionals can quickly put into practice to help people in their care.

Patients value a knowledgeable doctor. To address the growing hunger for nutrition knowledge, NutritionCME.org provides continuing medical education to help health care professionals answer patients’ nutrition-related questions on bone health, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, general nutrition, and obesity.

We’re adding new courses often, but there’s already a lot to choose from. The diverse offerings on NutritionCME.org include webcasts on the Power of Sustainable Changes in Diet and Lifestyle by Dean Ornish, M.D., Health Effects of Soyfoods: Separating the Data from Misinformation by Mark Messina, Ph.D., M.S., and Vegan Diets for Diabetes by PCRM’s own director of diabetes education and care Caroline Trapp, M.S.N., C.D.E.

There’s more to the site than continuing medical education. NutritionCME.org also offers conference updates, resources, and Breaking Medical News. If there’s a nutrition report in the journals tomorrow, it’s in Breaking Medical News today. We’ve recently covered stories on these topics:

  • Vegetarian Diets Improve Mood and Lower Stress
  • Latest Statistics on America’s Overweight Population
  • Dietary Fiber from Whole Grains Cuts Colorectal Cancer Risk

If you are a health care professional, I invite you to register and start taking courses at NutritionCME.org. Credits are available for physicians, nurses, and registered dietitians and registered dietitian technicians.

And if you aren’t a doctor, please share this site with physicians, nurses, and dietitians who you know. Together, we can make good nutrition a powerful force in health care.
