2020 Nutrition Continuing Education Series (CME Version): Nutrition and Early Parenthood


The University of Texas at Austin invites you to join our continuing education series in nutrition for adult learners and health professionals.

Featuring expert faculty from the Department of Nutritional Science and the Dell Medical School, our pre-recorded webinars will bring you the latest in nutritional science through the convenience of an online experience.

Starting with a molecular view of nutrition, we'll build your knowledge of practical, everyday nutritious behaviors to increase your understanding of how nutrition relates to health. Four modules containing 3 hours of CME in each module, are available through this Learning Express site. This is the first module in the series. Each module is stand-alone and they may be completed in any order or independently of each other.

Learn the critical role nutrition plays in pregnancy, postpartum, infancy, and early childhood—and how to eat to promote health during these critical life stages.
