Course Overview

Heathcare and fitness professionals need to know about nutrition because their clients want to know about nutrition, and they will get their knowledge somewhere. Instead of leaving them open to misinformation, learn nutrition principles and terminology that will enable you to transmit this knowledge to your clients with confidence as well as assist you in recognizing misinformation. Most importantly, you will learn what needs to be our diets to keep us healthy. This edition was updated by Dr. Suzanne Steen, full-time sports nutritionist for the U. of California, Berkley and has sports nutrition information woven into the course.
