Understand the ways in which poor nutrition promotes and accentuates health inequities and ethnic disparities and learn about the benefits of plant-based diets to reduce cardiovascular risk factors.

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 60 minutes. 

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 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
