last update on: 08/15/2023

Learn about a large prospective study conducted with a novel mobile data collection tool and the beneficial effects of diet on COVID-19 risk, which were especially evident for individuals living in areas of high socioeconomic deprivation.

Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 45 minutes. 

This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, dietitians, and pharmacists. 
The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


  • Describe the role of diet in influencing COVID-19 risk.
  • Understand how diet interacts with socioeconomic deprivation on COVID-19 risk.
  • Learn how public health strategies that improve access to healthy foods and address social determinants of health may help to reduce the burden of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Requirements for successful completion: Participants will be awarded contact hours commensurate with participation after completion of the post-test with a score of 70% or higher.
