Nutrition, Fasting, Longevity and Disease

The Course has been accredited by: 

Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California with
4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

The Nutrition, Fasting, Longevity and Disease course is presented and promoted by Create Cures Foundation, with the scientific and didactic support of the nonprofit Fondazione Valter Longo Onlus

Description

Dietary guidelines for healthy eating habits and nutrition have been available for many years through the USDA Food Pyramid. However, as demonstrated by the increasing number of overweight/obese individuals both in the United States and in many other countries in the world, these approaches seem to appear unsuccessful. In addition, while these approaches are considered preventive, they are usually not being implemented to treat diseases. For many diseases, the use of pharmaceuticals often remains the only treatment considered, ignoring the fact that the combination of certain drugs with certain foods may improve, or even decrease, the drug efficacy.

The "Nutrition, Fasting, Longevity and disease" course was developed to meet the educational expectations of physicians and other healthcare professionals (HCPs) by providing compact, topic-based research summaries on the health benefits of dietary interventions. The course will provide a detailed overview of how nutrition and fasting affect longevity and disease, and the key molecular mechanisms involved.

Target Audience

This Master course is a collection of educational research-focused videos (Enduring Materials) for scientists and licensed physicians and other health professionals.

It examines dietary interventions, including fasting and its clinical applications, which have been shown to induce benefits for overall longevity and for various disease states including, -cancer, diabetes, obesity, autoimmune, and neurodegenerative diseases. 

The Course has been accredited with 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

Non-healthcare professionals enthusiastic about the topic may also register and take the course without certification. 

Performance improvements will be assessed throughout the course with integrated quizzes and exams that must be successfully completed to be eligible for CMEs.

Succeeding course completion, the healthcare provider will then be able to re-evaluate, in 1-on-1 settings in their own practice, which learned approaches can be best implemented to improve treatments performance.
