[ITHACA, NY] The T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, in partnership with eCornell, is pleased to announce the release of a new online course, “Nutrition for a Healthy Heart.” The new course features lectures from Cornell University faculty, the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, and the University of Rochester School of Medicine, as well as bestselling authors and researchers.
“Most people know that heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the U.S. and other Western countries,” says Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus at Cornell University. “And most people know, more or less, that diet is a factor in causing heart disease, but only a few really know how profound is this effect or which foods might be problematic. It’s time to highlight scientific evidence that demonstrates how heart disease can be prevented and, even more dramatically, how people can be treated to reverse this disease.”
The two-week course is designed to be readily accessible to the public without scientific or medical training, while offering new research for a variety of health professionals. Topics range from contemporary heart disease research and medical practices to stocking a kitchen with heart-healthy foods. Like the Center’s best-selling Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition, the heart course plans to offer continuing education credits for a variety of health disciplines.
eCornell’s unique approach to online learning combines cutting-edge technologies with Ivy League thought leadership in an engaging, collaborative online learning environment. eCornell’s online courses are self-paced, instructor-facilitated, and focus on real-world objectives. eCornell has delivered online courses to more than 50,000 students in more than 200 countries.
