For the past 5 years, the goal of this course has been to provide health care professionals in primary care with the latest evidence-based tools and knowledge needed to optimize the care of patients with personalized nutrition. Diet and lifestyle are central to preventing and treating many chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, fatty liver disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome and cancer. Food as medicine, is an underutilized tool that can help treat and prevent serious chronic diseases that impact millions of people nationwide and constitute a large and disproportionate share of health care spending. In addition, we are in a new era where novel anti-obesity medications (AOMs) are transforming the way that we are able to treat our patients with chronic disease. Diet and lifestyle considerations are essential to maximize benefits and prevent complications in relation to these AOMs that have become popular in managing chronic disease. We understand not only that each person’s genes are different and that the metabolism of foods and medications responses are highly variable. This observation has given rise to the concept of personalized nutrition and the development of tools to optimize individual dietary recommendations. “Personalized Nutrition in Primary Care” is a one-day CME course that offers providers of varying backgrounds a chance to understand the growing body of evidence for food as medicine for chronic diseases and can be utilized to formulate personalized nutritional solutions and management options for disease prevention and treatment. Experts in the field will review current evidence and best practices.
