Precision Nutrition: Connections Between Food, Environment, and Health
March 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join the UNC Program for Precision Medicine in Healthcare (PPMH) for Precision Nutrition: Connections Between Food, Environment & Health, a free virtual mini-symposium on Wednesday March 22, 2023 from 2:00-4:00pm ET. At this interactive event, you will engage in discussion with leading precision nutrition researchers at UNC.
Precision nutrition is an emerging personalized approach to nutrition that takes into account an individual’s unique dietary needs, lifestyle factors, and genetic makeup. This approach recognizes the intricate relationship between diet, environment, and health, acknowledging that what we eat and how we live can significantly impact our wellbeing. A precision nutrition approach also considers the individual’s unique health goals, such as managing a chronic condition or maintaining a healthy weight. By taking into account all of these factors, precision nutrition can help individuals make informed choices about their diet and lifestyle and achieve optimal health outcomes. Ultimately, precision nutrition recognizes that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition and health, and it tailors dietary recommendations and interventions to the individual.
This dynamic discussion forum will explore the breadth of Precision Health initiatives at UNC and facilitate connections between colleagues with similar research interests. We hope to see you there!
