Bringing It All Together: A Systems Approach to Nutrition
Understanding nutrition's impact on health requires an intricate knowledge of all the different systems within the human body. Learn how a systems approach to nutrition could change the field.

Drawing on examples from obesity and diabetes prevention, weight loss threshold effects and the role of physical activity, this podcast highlights the need to bring biology, epidemiology, psychology and other disciplines together in a systemic way. Based on a conference organized by The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science and held at the New York Academy of Sciences on April 16, 2015, this podcast is supported by Metagenics.
