Learn about the link between gut health and cardiovascular disease and the role nutrition plays.
The Learning Process:
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 1 hour.
This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, dietitians and health and wellness coaches.
The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
1. To describe the contribution of intestinal microbiota and its interactions with dietary intake in the development and progression of cardio-renal diseases.
2. To discuss the latest mechanistic insights of dietary-induced, microbiota-mediated metabolic pathways and their clinical implications.
3. To highlight the promise of novel strategies that target intestinal microbiome to mitigate cardio-renal disease risk.
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.
