Fueling Well in a New World; The Latest Data on How to Fuel Better for Mental Health, Immunity, and Longevity in Your Patient Population


Though good nutrition has always been important for good mental health, the last 18 months have altered our discussion on what it means to truly fuel well. The way we snack, how we utilize food, and the challenges we face to maintain a balanced immune system and a balanced brain are more important than ever. In this presentation, Senior Fellow and Nationally Recognized Registered Dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick will cover the top nutrition needs to focus on for your patients and clients. Kristin will discuss the latest studies on dietary modification benefits in adults and adolescents and will provide steps to consider in incorporating a conversation about nutrition with your patient. 


At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Identify one tactic on how to introduce the concept of fueling for better health with their patients
  • Summarize the main components of diet and good mental health
  • Describe the role that gut health plays in mental health outcomes
