Event: Nutritional Biochemistry

This course of study provides an overview of essential concepts in human biochemistry and links those concepts to specific applications in clinical nutrition. The course will examine the biological roles of macronutrients and micronutrients and their metabolism using basic knowledge in physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology. Topics include carbohydrates and energy metabolism, protein and amino acids, bioactive peptides, enzymes, fiber, lipids, the arachidonic acid cascade, minerals, water-soluble and fat-soluble micronutrients, along with an introduction to energy production, reduction-oxidization balance and biochemical individuality. Participants will explore the relationships of nutrients to major health disorders, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.

Completion of this course will allow you to receive 26 continuing education hours from Kansas State University. It remains your responsibility to verify with your governing agency or professional development committee that these CE hours will be accepted.
