Event description

Description

A seminar for health professionals to learn about how genetic variances can impact sleep, and how sleep can impact gene expression.

By the end of the seminar you will have an in depth knowledge of at the genes that affect sleep and understand how professional genotype analysis can be used to create personalised diet and lifestyle prescriptions - to enable your clients to achieve optimum sleep.

The genes covered affect almost all body systems so the seminar will provide valueable information for any health professional using nutrigenomics in practice.
