WRDA News

Last week WRDA welcomed 4 amazing speakers to our Clinical Update:

Tamara Duker Freuman presented compelling evidence for utilizing circadian rhythms (particularly eating most calories and carbohydrates early in the day) in promotion of weight loss.

Laura Manning, gastroenterology specialist, broke down the LowFODMAP diet, a helpful tool for dietitians treating patients or clients with IBS.

Janet Zarowitz explored the amazing current research into the human genome and ways to tap into genetic code to focus treatment in difficult cases.

Dr. Jaime Schehr gave concrete suggestions for managing patients with auto-immune conditions like IBD or rheumatoid arthritis.

The speakers' enthusiasm for speaking to our group was obvious and we are so grateful they could share their knowledge and experience with us!
