Dietary recommendations have continued to evolve over the last several decades based on research and the impact on cardiovascular health. This short course provides an excellent overview for the RDN, NDTR or CDCES of recent changes regarding dietary cholesterol and uses a case based study approach for a better understanding of how to implement these changes into practice.
