Nutrition Education Curriculum

We've made it easy to bring nutrition education into your medical practice.

Looking to bring nutrition education to your patients? The Physicians Committee's nutrition education curriculum makes it easy! This program allows you to invite people with diabetes, weight problems, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or other conditions into your office to learn about the lifesaving effects of healthful eating. Download the free PDF above to get started.
