Earn up to 3.5 hours of continuing education focused on Nutritional Pharmacy when you purchase the ABC’s of Nutritional Pharmacy Bundle, originally presented at the ACA | ACVP | PPHI Annual Conference & Expo.

Webinar 1: Vitamins Fact or Fiction: Functionally Using Nutrients to Impact Positive Patient Outcomes — Jeff Robins, RPh, FACA / 1.5 CE
Many of our patients eat the standard American diet (SAD). Along with poor daily diet, most of our patients are taking medications that cause drug-induced nutritional deficiencies. Our patients are at risk for further health degradation due to their nutritional status. Jeff will help you understand how to pick nutritional products that are efficacious in your patients. You will learn how to meet your patient’s nutritional needs generally, and for specific common ailments and disease states. Not only does this type of practice offer a sustainable profit model, but your practice will also set itself apart from the competition by giving in-depth nutritional care to your patients.

Webinar 2: The Role of Dysbiosis in Women’s Health — Suzanne Keyes, PharmD, FACA, IFMCP / 1 CE
An estimated 28 million women have known energy and metabolism problems due to hypothyroidism. 1.3 million women enter menopause annually. Approximately 2/3rds of the population is currently dealing with symptoms of adrenal exhaustion. Attend this session on Women’s Health and you will:

  1. Leave with the ability to distinguish the overlapping symptoms of these 3 conditions.
  2. Be familiar with the biological pathways and drug-induced nutrient depletions occurring from common prescriptions.
  3. Be comfortable recommending nutritional supplements to support the pathways, foods to avoid, and food plans to recommend as well as multiple lifestyle modifications that support the triad of conditions.

Webinar 3: Implementing Personalized Nutrition into Pharmacy Practice — Lara Zakaria, PharmD, MS, CNS, IFMCP / 1 CE
Nutrition intervention is considered first line in the treatment of most chronic diseases. However, most pharmacists don’t have extensive training in nutrition or don’t feel confident making nutritional recommendations in the practice. In this workshop-style session, we will learn simple, turn-key assessment solutions that will turn any pharmacist into a community expert allowing you to integrate foundational nutrition support for your patients.
