Seminar on Lab Assessments for Nutritional Evaluation

A 4-week webinar seminar open to NTI students and grads – happening January-February 2021

NTI students and grads are well trained to support their clients’ wellness goals by helping them optimize healthy nutrition and lifestyle habits. Tools such as client intake forms, symptom surveys, and food journals are extremely beneficial, but having additional information from laboratory test results can provide added valuable insights, useful in making sound recommendations. This seminar is designed specifically to meet the learning needs of holistic nutrition professionals and empower ability for more comprehensive, individualized nutrition counseling.

The scope of practice for Nutrition Therapists allows for investigation about health topics through the lens of nutrition, and learning how to interpret the nutritional implications of certain lab markers fits well within this standard.
