CDHF has partnered with NutriProCan to bring you 60-90-minute online nutrition courses that are science-based, up-to-date, and created under the supervision of Lisa Spriet, a registered dietitian, and former university professor in food and nutrition sciences.

A registered dietitian is a regulated and licensed healthcare professional that is university trained in the field of food and nutrition, combined with supervised practical experience. They are experts in translating scientific, medical and nutrition information into general education, personalized goals, action plans and support through coaching. NutriProCan’s dietitians have an extensive background in the application of food science combined with behavioural coaching to drive lifelong change towards a healthy approach to food.

These courses include quick quizzes along the way, and you can enjoy this seminar-style course for 60-days from purchase to maximize your learning retention! You can also pause the courses, take breaks, and continue later at your own pace.
