Tuesday, May 2, 2017
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CST
The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) dietary eating pattern, which emphasizes low-fat and non-fat dairy products, fruit, vegetables and whole grains is one of the most widely prescribed dietary modifications for reducing blood pressure (BP) and cardiovascular disease risk.
Join Ronald M. Krauss, MD, senior scientist and director of atherosclerosis research at Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute, as he presents the latest research that supports the DASH Eating Plan as a tool for the prevention of a variety of health conditions, with a specific focus on key food components. In this webinar Dr. Krauss, will review research on the modification of the DASH diet to allow for more liberal total and saturated fat intake, in conjunction with moderate carbohydrate intake resulting in similar benefits to blood pressure and no deleterious effects on lipid risk factors.
Becky Schaffer, MS, RDN, LD, Clinical Dietitian at the Mayo Clinic working in the Division of Endocrinology with a focus on hypertension and nephrology, will provide guidance on translating the DASH diet into real-life situations for dietitians and other health professionals.
