This webinar is restricted to NPA members only.

 

New research published in Am J Clin Nutr and The Journal of Nutrition suggests that consuming a moderate amount of protein at three meals throughout the day has the potential to support healthy aging by positively influencing muscle growth and repair, glucose regulation and satiety and weight management.

 

Join Douglas Paddon-Jones, PhD to learn about this new body of research and discover practical ways to help people make small, meaningful changes to their diet to achieve optimal health by incorporating 25-30 grams of protein at each meal. One CPEU is applied for the webinar.

 

Speaker bio: Dr. Paddon-Jones is a Professor of Nutrition and Metabolism at the University of Texas Medical Branch. He is the Director of the Nutrition and Metabolism Laboratory in the School of Health Professions and a Senior Fellow of the Sealy Center on Aging. He was a recipient of the Vernon R.
