Presented by the MUIH Nutrition Department in partnership with Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association (MNDA), this symposium will focus on Nutritional Genomics in Clinical Practice. The field of nutrigenomics emphasizes the critical intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, and MUIH’s symposium will center specifically on translating nutrigenomics information for the clinician and clinical practice. Attendees will learn the science behind the field and gain practical skills to apply in their practice to meet the growing patient and client demand for information. A separate track will focus on Naturopathic Management of the Complex Patient and sessions will discuss topics such as chronic infections, digestive disorders, anxiety, pre-conception and conception.
Speakers include Leah Hollon ND, Liz Lipski PhD, Ginger Nash ND, Ralph Esposito ND, Anil Gajnath MD, Tara Nayak ND, Eleonora Gafton, MS, Jessica Pizano DCN, Amanda Archibald RD, Chrissie Williamson DCN, Kevin Passero ND, Erin Kinney ND, Randy Gastwirt, ND, PhD, and Lindsey Berkson, DC.
This symposium is suitable for clinical nutritionists, MDs, NDs, other clinicians, academics, and students with an interest in nutritional genomics and clinical practice. Space is limited to 100 participants. For those seeking a genetics refresher, a Pre-Symposium is available Friday morning as a Pre-Symposium workshop. A second Pre-Symposium workshop on Friday morning will feature Culinary Genomics.
The symposium will take place over three days on our campus in Laurel, Maryland – halfway between Baltimore and Washington, DC. Light breakfast will be served on Saturday and Sunday and lunch on Saturday.
