National University of Health Sciences hosted the first of its kind conference on the Lombard campus focused on the latest research and trends in nutrition March 24 and 25, 2018. The conference provided some of the most cutting edge, evidence-based information available about various kinds of diets able to address multiple patient concerns from some of today’s leading health care experts.
The nutrition conference, directed to health care practitioners, students and the public, provided attendees the opportunity to learn about various food movements, and how to implement these food diets or strategies to optimize health. Health care professionals received the added value of receiving study results from some of the presenters to immediately begin putting the latest research into practice.
“We were pleased with the quality of the education delivered; attendees walked away impressed with the knowledge provided to them,” said Dr. Jenna Glenn, DC, ND, MS, conference organizer and dean of the NUHS Postprofessional Department. Seventy attendees participated in this first-time program.”
