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 know the types of existing evidence on the health effects of high red meat consumption.

3. Attendees will understand the critical importance of 'instead of what?' in the propagation of conflicting dietary reports
4. Attendees will understand the basis for dubious guidelines regarding processed meat
5. Attendees will gain insight into means of synthesizing and assessing evidence suitable for gauging the health effects of diet
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.
