Nutritional Medicine for Adults Workshop Series and Certificate Program

The Nutritional Medicine for Adults Workshop Series and Certificate Program is for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians and other allied health professionals. The workshops include faculty lectures on nutrition science, research methodology and nutrition as it relates to different body systems and a broad range of conditions and diseases. The workshop series addresses a current gap in health professionals' training by providing cutting-edge information on nutritional factors for adult health and prevention of chronic diseases and conditions associated with aging. Clinicians will be able to earn CEUs that can be applied toward a certificate in nutritional medicine issued by the Rush Department of Internal Medicine Section on Nutrition and Nutritional Epidemiology.

Ongoing Research

We have published a number of studies on nutrition as it relates to healthy aging and have ongoing nutrition studies in different populations, such as:
  • A study of diet and healthy aging in more than 7,000 older Chicago residents followed since 1993.
  • A study of more than 1,000 residents of Chicago-area retirement communities that relates nutrients in the diet to brain health and neurological diseases.
