Presenters will share recent recommendations and breakthroughs in male fertility that include the influence of diet, weight and environmental factors on reproductive health. Attendees will learn nutritional strategies and recommendations for counseling male clients on fertility-friendly foods, dietary patterns and lifestyle changes.
