NIM Meeting

Event held by NIM – Nutrition in Medicine on 08/20/2018:

Dr. Monica Aggarwal, a cardiologist from UF, gave a fascinating talk about how to counsel a patient on diet and why diet is one of the most important topics you should talk to your patient about. Based on her research, she helped dispel myths surrounding certain foods, gave advice on 5 basic things everyone can do to improve your health, and explained how nutrition is implemented in her practice and why a focus on nutrition benefits overall health, particularly in regards to cardiac health. She also emphasized that the easiest way to counsel about nutrition is by making it an important topic in our lives, leading by action.
