Probiotics Primer: The Connection Between Food, The Body and Good Bacteria

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 2:00 pm EST

What is the real connection between your diet and the health of your gut?

Participants will be able to:

  • Report on recent research on probiotics and physical health
  • Discuss the potential impact of probiotics on chronic disease and overall wellbeing
  • Understand the foods that offer probiotics and how to incorporate them into a regular diet
  • Share science and education gained with patients, clients, consumers, colleagues, students and others to increase their knowledge and encourage greater future understanding of this timely topic

This webinar is approved for one CPE credit for Registered Dietitians and Dietetic Technicians, Registered. Meets learning codes 5220, 4040, and 2080.
