This webinar was presented live on January 20, 2021.
In 2003 the Human Genome Project promised to deliver the kind of information that would enable every individual to live a longer and healthier life. But has genetics delivered all that it promised? And what role do we as dietitians play? This webinar looks at the evolution of nutrigenomics for dietitians and the challenges they face integrating it into their practice. This includes gaining adequate education, building confidence, being able to integrate it into their clinical practice, being able to evaluate genetic tests and testing companies in the market place. Together we will imagine what the future looks like for nutrigenomics and how dietitians can be positioned to be the leaders in the field.
