Mediterranean Diet CPEs
**Note: Affiliate links contained below.**
It’s International Mediterranean Diet Month! I personally love the Mediterranean Diet and try to cook its delicious recipes when I can. What’s not to love about using simple ingredients and lots of herbs and spices?
While it’s a joy to eat the Mediterranean way, it’s also great to have clinical knowledge about the benefits and applications in practice. Sharing information on this mainstream diet is one way to encourage health and help prevent disease. It’s called a diet, but focuses on all the lovely things to eat instead of cutting out whole food groups like so many fad diets out there.
So in honor of International Mediterranean Diet Month, why not complete some Mediterranean Diet continuing education credits? Here are several CPE program options. Enjoy!
