Challenge yourself to consider another perspective on the relationship between the food industry and scientific research with this course!
This CPE course is based on a book that presents a critical look at the relationship between the food industry and its influence on research and medical and nutrition professionals. The premise of the book is that the line between product marketing and science can be thin and sometimes blurred. According to Marion Nestle, the book’s author, without understanding who paid for the research, it is hard for anyone to know what dietary advice to follow. While acknowledging funding dilemmas faced by nutrition researchers, Unsavory Truth calls on nutrition researchers and educators of professionals and the public to recognize industry-skewed information. Nestle’s perspective will challenge the nutrition care professional to consider the relationships between scientific research, media coverage of research studies, product marketing, and alliances between professional organizations and industry.
This course uses a case-study based format to assess knowledge and understanding of the content to help the participant apply what they have learned to education, research, and clinical practice.
Course includes hard copy book and 1 certificate.
