Implementing Genomics: Understanding How Genetics Impacts Nutritional Recommendations for Cognition and Mental Health
presented by Nathan Morris, MD

Building upon what you already may know about genetic testing and clinically relevant SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), new data on cognitive and mental health SNPs will be presented. Dr. Morris will assist in identifying various diet and lifestyle modifications that are associated with the newly discovered SNPs and how to provide client recommendations for maximum impact.

Integrative and Nutritional Strategies for Anxiety
presented by James Greenblatt, MD

Nervousness, worry and fear, cumulatively classified as anxiety, are familiar emotions all individuals encounter from time to time. However, for 40 million American adults, these feelings occur on a frequent basis.
