We rely on our physicians to heal us when we are ill, but more and more, we are needing a trained reliable source of sound nutritional advice when it comes to preventing illness or getting healthy after disease strikes. Until recently most medical doctors in this country were barely trained in the science of human nutrition. But now, medical students and physicians already in practice are receiving much-needed current education in nutrition to better serve their patients. This training is through two online programs developed by NRI director Steven H. Zeisel, M.D., Ph.D., and NRI principal investigator Martin Kohlmeier, M.D., Ph.D. The two online courses, offered free to healthcare providers, contain topics ranging from cancer nutrition and nutrition for children to the links between nutrients and diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
