Webinar Description

We are entering into an age of Revolutionary Health Care where we can have personalized wellness for our individual needs. The field of nutrigenomics studies the interrelationship between compounds in food and how genes and their expression pattern are modified. The notion of matching diet with an individual’s genetic makeup is transforming the way wellness views nutrition as a means of managing health and preventing disease. But wait! The genes in our microbiome outnumber the genes in our genome by about 100 to 1 and are often called our “second genome,” so the microbiome is critical in any conversation about genomics.

This webinar reviews how food is information to our cells. You will learn the role of nutrition on gene expression and the potential for personalized modifications of food or diet to support health and reduce the risk of diet-related diseases.

Objectives

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • identify how Nutrigenomics and the Microbiome are moving us toward personalization of wellness recommendations.
  • review specific examples of how genes can be unlocked by nutritional intervention.
  • identify the ethical and clinical and psychosocial challenges of direct-to-consumer genomic testing.
