Overview

Learn about the role of nutrition in relation to diseases of the circulatory system and diabetes, which are major causes of death worldwide. You’ll learn about heart disease, stroke, other forms of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and how often these occur worldwide. You will learn about modifiable risk factors, such as blood pressure and blood lipids, and how they impact these diseases in a different way. 

Dieticians and doctors often get questions from their patients on what they can do to improve their health. In this course, part of the Professional Certificate Program Nutrition and Disease, you will learn about the interaction between nutrients, diets and cardiometabolic disease (heart disease and diabetes). 

You'll learn about the current progress in nutrition and cardiometabolic disease research. You will learn how cardiometabolic diseases can be prevented on the population level through lifestyle and dietary modifications. 

This course is especially valuable for professionals (in training) from various disciplines related to nutrition or cardiometabolic disease (e.g. nutritionists, epidemiologists, health promoters, physicians, health policy makers, nutrition educators, biologists, food scientists).
