Healthcare professionals, it’s time to heed the pandemic’s wake-up call about the link between diet-related diseases and chronic illness. Now, more than ever, we must realize the link between diet, lifestyle, and the majority of chronic diseases that plague modern society. From pediatrics to geriatrics, there is no systems-wide approach. Researchers increasingly recognize that obesity is a disease state that is driven not by a lack of willpower, but a dysfunctional food system. The food and beverage industry encourages overeating of toxic calories, which is compounded by increasing levels of stress, poor sleep hygiene, and lack of exercise, setting millions on the path to poor health outcomes and chronic disease.
Join your colleagues and respected leaders as we educate ourselves into a more promising future. Swedish Medical Center’s Metabolic Health and Nutrition CME Symposium is back with a powerful call to action. Our live/virtual hybrid international symposium will be held June 9-11, 2022, at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Seattle, WA. Building upon two previous highly acclaimed national conferences, the bar has been set high. For those who cannot attend in person, we’re pleased to announce that the entire event will also be live-streamed, recorded, and also include bonus expert content for on-demand viewing at any time.
On Saturday, June 11th, Julia Mossbridge, PhD will discuss the link between diet-related diseases and chronic illness.
