FEBRUARY 9: NUTRITIONAL PSYCHIATRY- Vicki Kobliner, MS RDN
• A sizeable body of research in the field of nutritional psychiatry supports the role of diet in mental health, as well as its potential as a modifiable risk factor for mental illness. Think about this: there is an absolute requirement for nutritional compounds to create and activate brain chemicals but there is no such thing as an SSRI deficiency….therapeutic nutrition intervention provides a foundation for good mental health and can enhance medication efficacy. Let’s discuss the potential for omega 3’s, vitamins, diet changes and much more to change your brain.

MAY 11: HEALTHY BABY (PRECONCEPTION) – Vicki Kobliner, MS RDN
• The womb is truly baby’s first home. Making it a safe, nourishing and non-toxic place to grow is priority one, while poor nutrition, stress and a toxic environment during preconception and pregnancy can negatively impact offspring through four generations. Let’s talk about the positive changes you can make to prepare your body for conception. Men, you are definitely invited. Preconception health is about both parents.

SEPTEMBER 28: ADHD: MAKING THE GRADE WITHOUT DRUGS – Dr. Nancy O’Hara
