Live Webinar: Building Your Immune System with Food and Nutrients
2 CEUs – Good for the whole dental team.
Live webinars are interactive. You will be able to ask questions and communicate in real time with the instructor. It is not considered distance learning. Anyone registered for this class will receive instructions regarding how to sign in to the live webinar. It is recommended for this class that you have speakers and a microphone. Most laptops, tablets and smartphones will have these functions.
This 2-hour live webinar will first cover eating for general health—the pros/cons of calorie counting, good and bad fats, metabolism, inflammation, sugar, digestion of wheat and other grains and hormones in our food. It will then address nutrients that are good for building one’s immune system. The program will cover vitamins and nutrients that are key for immunity, the foods in which they can be found (and in what amounts), foods that can help with absorption or transport of the nutrients to the body’s cells, and foods that have antiviral properties.
