WELCOA TRAINING WEBINAR – The Power of Nutrigenomics: A New Era in Precision and Personalized Health Promotion
February 21, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-8
ttriThe overall goal of this training is to gain an understanding of the role of nutrition on gene expression and the potential for personalization of health promotion programs based on genomics. Health Promotion professionals are finally able to put science to the idea that we’re all different and we respond differently to lifestyle recommendations. We all respond individually to the environment, to diet, to trying to lose weight, and to exercise training. But we never really understood the science behind it… Until now! Genomics gives us that precision science.
Nutrigenomics is the study of how food affects gene behavior. People are starting to want to understand themselves. How is it relevant to me? How does it change me? How do I respond?
Dr. Karen will explain the impact of the genomics revolution on health promotion. Based on Genomics, we can customize dietary recommendations, exercise plans, and other behavioral and lifestyle interventions that can help improve overall wellness.
Dr. Karen will also address the possible implications of this new science for corporate health promotion programs.
