Webinar Description:
Protein mania is all around us. The tabloids describe magical high protein diets, the big box stores display rows of shakes, and social media ads promise that collagen will fix all that ails you. There is much confusion and misinformation. Whey, collagen, arginine, glutamine, oh my! This session will help you become a protein pro. Patients with multiple comorbidities have unique protein needs. Learn how whole protein differs from amino acids and the role both play in building new tissue. The scientific information must then be translated into meals that patients enjoy. Learn why and then how to meet your patients’ protein needs. Join us as we take a deep dive into the protein pool.
