Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition
Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition
A powerful science-based approach to nutrition that can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity and improve your quality of life.
Overall health and risk of degenerative disease are inextricably linked to dietary practice. This innovative online certificate program expands upon the ground-breaking book The China Study, and is designed to help you understand the role of diet in healing and managing disease. Learn the basis for dietary causes of chronic degenerative diseases, and clinical solutions for reducing risk. Uncover practical applications of a whole-food, plant-based diet and the positive effect it could have on our health care systems and society. Each course is based on the lectures and research of Dr. T. Colin Campbell . Also included are guest lectures from experts in the field including Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D., Dr. John McDougall, M.D., Dr. Antonia Demas, Ph.D., Dr. Matthew Lederman, M.D., Dr. Doug Lisle, Ph.D. and more.
Topics in this three-course series include the troubled state of health and healthcare in America, fundamentals of nutrition, research and findings from the China Project and an examination of current nutrition research practices and methodology. Students will emerge from the series able to approach nutrition from the “wholistic” point of view advanced by Dr. Campbell, and able to evaluate with more confidence the conflicting messages about healthy diets coming at us every day from the media.This certificate is not eligible for medical, nursing or pharmacist continuing education credits (CMEs, CNEs, CPEs). If you are interested in pursuing these credits, please see the Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition-CE edition.
