Webinar Summary:

Curriculum for dietetics education must continue to respond to the changing population healthcare and nutritional needs to prepare the dietitian-nutritionist for a career as the “nutrition expert” of the future. With the chronic disease epidemic facing solutions by all disciplines of healthcare and government policies, there is a growing appreciation of integrative and functional medicine and nutrition therapy value in addressing chronic disease. This webinar will acquaint the participant with key tenets of integrative and functional nutrition, and the value of including exposure of these principals within the ACEND curriculum. The two presenters are experienced in developing integrative and functional nutrition tracts within existing university accredited dietetic internships. They will share some guidelines for developing curriculum that includes training in the pursuit of integrative and functional education.
