The Create Cures Foundation, has created two science and evidence-based Masterclasses about various dietary interventions, including fasting and its clinical applications, and that have been shown to have benefits for longevity and for the prevention of various diseases. The Masterclasses are based on Professor Valter Longo’s scientific research, as well as on the most relevant studies about longevity, nutrition, ageing, and other related diseases.
The course "Nutrition, Fasting, Longevity and Disease" and "Longevity Through Fasting and Nutrition" have been accredited by The Keck School of Medicine of USC and designed for 8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ total.
The course will explore in detail how fasting and nutrition influence longevity and contribute to the prevention of several diseases, as well as the use of diets to improve health. Nevertheless, there is yet no consensus around which diets are “safe”. Using science-based studies as its founding analytical instrument, this course will offer an up-to-date overview of the nutritional interventions, as well as their advantages and disadvantages regarding different types of diseases (cancer, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular, autoimmune, and neurodegenerative diseases).
The course is composed of 8 modules, for a total duration of 190 minutes. Upon completion of the course, the healthcare professionals will be able to re-evaluate, in their own practice and with individual patients, which of the learned approaches can be implemented to improve treatment and results.
The second masterclass is an in-depth follow-up of the first class. It will focus on the effects of nutrition and gene modulation by nutrients in relation to aging and lifespan. The course will also offer an introduction to the biology of ageing and to the mechanisms involved in longevity, as well as to those that can prevent age-related diseases. Starting from evidence-based data, the course will explore fasting and nutrition, clinical research, practical applications of fasting, and analyze specific clinical cases.
The course is composed of 4 modules, for a total duration of 220 minutes.
Upon course completion, physicians, biologists, pharmacists, nutritionists, and other healthcare professional will received both theoretical and practical information, as well as explore clinical cases about ageing, age-related diseases, nutrition, and the fast-mimicking diet.
- Assess various fasting definitions and modalities
- Identify the benefits and risks of fasting based upon published scientific literature
- Integrate the knowledge of fasting, nutrition, and lifestyle in patient counseling
- Professionals in the healthcare sector (physicians, biologists, pharmacists, nutritionists) who will be able to request CME credits upon completion of an exam.
- Enthusiasts of nutrition and healthy longevity, who will be able to receive a certificate upon completion of the course.
The Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California designates these enduring activities for a maximum of 8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for each course.
Physicians should claim only the credits commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The Keck School of Medicine of USC is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Create Cures Foundation’s multimedia Courses will operate primarily for educational purposes to teach practitioners or individuals about nutrition, health, and extending the human lifespan. The courses are qualified as an educational activity as described by section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code and developed not for the purpose of generating revenue. The teaching methods of the courses are objective, and the course content include the factual foundation of the treated scientific theory. The factual foundation is sufficiently detailed to allow users to form an independent conclusion about its effectiveness. The information here are provided for general knowledge with the sole purpose of improving or developing the users’ capabilities and are not a substitute of professional or medical advice or treatment for specific medical conditions.
