Join Drs. Robyn Murphy, ND and Aaron Goldman, PhD as they team up to deliver an exciting dive into the clinical application of lifestyle genetic testing. They provide a comprehensive education that comprises of everything from the basics of genetics to the practical clinical application, including labs, its predictive value and influence on treatment strategies. Learn how to apply genetic testing related to personalized nutrition, hormone balance and detoxification through the lens of women’s health. Discuss real cases, protocols, receive resources and strategies to effectively introduce genetic testing into your practice to improve patient outcomes and stay current with the evolution of medicine.

Goals and Objectives

  • Clinician will have an understanding into how lifestyle/nutritional genetics impacts infertility. Areas include personalized nutrition, hormone dysfunction and sensitivity to detoxification through the lens of women’s health. Discuss real cases, protocols and receive resources and strategies.
  • Understand the application of genetic testing in clinical practice in relation to predicting disease, additional lab testing, and individual treatment.
  • Understand limitation of genetic testing and determine appropriate genetic companies for clinical application.
