New Nutrition Curriculum for Health Care Professionals
The Physicians Committee created the new Nutrition Education Curriculum website in response to the growing number of physicians who want to offer nutrition information to their patients. The website allows health care professionals to stream video lectures and download supplemental resources for their patients.
The Nutrition Education Curriculum is designed for medical offices, worksites, and anywhere else people will benefit from learning about the lifesaving effects of healthful eating. The 18 sessions cover subjects ranging from diabetes and hypertension to digestive health and cancer prevention. Other topics include dining out and dealing with addictive foods.
Each session has an overview of the topic, a list of tools and resources for teaching the class, a streaming video to show during the class, and lecture and discussion topics.
The Physicians Committee has tested this approach in two clinical studies with GEICO—the well-known insurance company—finding that participants lost weight and improved their health.
The entire curriculum is available at PCRM.org/Curriculum.
