Encore Presentation of Webinar Tomorrow- CEUs!

Thu, Oct 10, 2019 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT

 Join Dr. John Bagnulo for a deep dive into a human metabolism centered food webinar that is sure to strengthen your interest in whole foods. This discussion highlights many interactive molecules inherent to whole plant foods simply missing from foods comprised of isolated ingredients. Each has countless interactions with our endocrine, neurological, cardiovascular, and hepato-biliary systems, in addition to the omni-influential microbiome and fundamental cellular processes.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this lecture participants will be able to
1. Identify the various components in whole foods that have microbial, biochemical, or epigenomic influence beyond the macronutrient content.
2. Describe the synergy found between specific compounds contained in whole foods and lost with refined and/or heavily processed foods.
3. Provide an example of where complex interactions between phytonutrients and vitamins provide a physiological advantage over the consumption of each constituent consumed in isolation.
4. Outline the major areas of research that are currently illustrating the benefits of whole food consumption over refined foods.

KAND members

Recently the Academy has called on RDNs as experts and advocates on the topic of life cycle nutrition to speak up and reach out to their elected congressional representatives on the SNAP proposed rule that would reduce access to SNAP and school meals for many families in your community.

Please join your fellow KAND members and advocate for food access in our state.  We are asking you to do two things:
