Physicians in Training - Resources
It’s no secret that nutrition is an important part of prevention and reversal of chronic disease, but does your medical school teach you how to use it as a tool? Are you ready to advise your patients on good nutrition?
Join the Physicians Committee to learn current innovative models being used in medical schools and how to encourage your school to adopt them.
We’ve designed four lectures on evidence-based eating patterns for the treatment and prevention of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and obesity that can be used in medical school curriculum. The slides are designed so that professors can easily add them to their classes.
