Understanding the Pros and Cons of Lifestyle Intervention
This webinar is Part 2 of a 2-part series.
More and more exercise and health professionals are working closely with clients with chronic diseases related to their lifestyle. It’s important to provide these clients evidence-based information on what to do, how to do it and direction on referrals while guiding them through lifestyle change.
Personalized nutrition uses diagnostic tools to identify how a person’s unique molecular and genetic profile might predispose them to or protect them from certain diseases. This information can then be used to tailor interventions i.e. diet, exercise, medication, etc. While personalized nutrition plans are outside the scope of practice for exercise professionals, a better understanding of what genetic and epigenetic factors may impact a client’s lifestyle, disease risk and ultimately their health is essential to providing the best care and service.
With terminology and basic concepts covered in Part 1, this webinar examines the benefits (i.e. not one size fits all approach), risks (i.e. elitism, patient privacy and identifying untreatable life-altering diseases) and applications of lifestyle interventions more closely.
Led by Dominique Adair, MS., RD., a nutrition and fitness advisor, public speaker, educator, writer and President of Adair Fitness & Nutrition along with Alison Steiber, Ph.D., a registered dietician nutritionist and Chief Science Officer at the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, you will gain a deeper understanding of the important factors that affect your clients individually so that you can better help them along their journey toward better health.
Upon completion, you will be able to:
• Review lifestyle induced chronic diseases
• Understand the literature exploring these diseases as they relate to genotypic testing and phenotypic expression
• Debate the pros and cons of personalized lifestyle interventions
• Understand how and where to pursue qualified developments in this field
• Determine whether incorporating aspects of these innovations into your practice has merit
