The majority of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer are partly related to or affected by nutrition. Our food choices directly impact our health and can help prevent or reverse certain diseases, yet a 2015 study found that less than 20% of the 121 four-year medical schools surveyed required a nutrition course to graduate. This presentation provides critical, life-changing information for students and professionals in the medical field.
