If you are a doctor, nurse, or allied health professional looking to improve your knowledge of the role of nutrition communication in chronic disease prevention and management, this course is for you. We will arm you with the information and skills you need to effectively convey evidence-based brief nutrition messages to your patients.

You will learn the key concepts central to dietary patterns for prevention and management of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, how to talk about diet-related health, and identify the key features of healthy diets.

From the University of Newcastle team that brought you The Science of Weight Loss and Food for Kids, this course is an evidence-based approach to understanding the key role nutrition – and nutrition communication – plays in preventing and managing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
