Should we really worry about dietary cholesterol? Cut through the hype in this engaging presentation from Dr. Neal Barnard.

The Learning Process

Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the continuing education self-assessment and 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 0.5 hours.

This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, and dietitians. 

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the role of cholesterol in the body.
  2. Describe current recommendations for daily cholesterol intake.
  3. Identify at least one reason why conflicting data have been reported for the effects of dietary cholesterol intake on serum cholesterol.

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.
