Food for Thought: the Role of Nutrition in Mental Health "Lunch n Learn"

CE Hours: Approved for 2.5 CORE continuing education hours

Nutrition is big business, and the public is growing increasingly interested in how food affects health. At the same time, mental health has become a huge focus for scientists and the general population alike.  It is no surprise, then, that interest in the impact of food on mental health, or "nutritional psychiatry," which is a new field of study, is also gathering momentum.
