"Foods that Fight Cancer"
Lecture: 4 Clinical C.E. Hours
 
 Pam 15
 
Course Description

Research suggests that nearly 50% of all cancers are preventable and related to our lifestyles with 30% of cancers attributed to dietary factors. But food can work in our favor, to reduce our risk of cancer IF we eat the right foods, prepared in the right way. In this session, fourteen different food families and their anti-cancer phytochemicals will be discussed. We will also discuss the five most common mechanisms by which these foods fight cancer.  Findings from cancer research focusing on chemoprevention of particular foods will be discussed.  Tips from research about how to prepare these foods to preserve maximum potency of the important cancer fighting phytochemicals in the foods will be shared. Current dietary recommendations for cancer prevention from the World Health Organization and the American Institute of Cancer Research will be discussed. Resources will be shared to help participants continue learning even after this session.

Learning Objectives

1.     Learn the five most common mechanisms by which certain foods fight cancer.

2.     Define polyphenols and phytochemicals.

3.     Learn the phytochemicals and foods that research has found to be protective against cancer.

4.     Learn evidenced based preparation tips that will help preserve cancer fighting phytochemicals in foods.

"Oral Health Risks and Cultural Habits"

Lecture: 4 Clinical C.E. Hours

Sherry Priebe SHEphotography 9

Course Description
 
This course raises oral health professionals’ awareness of unique risks associated with widespread cultural and social oral habits, such as chewing betel nut, khat, smokeless tobacco, and using coca leaf or kola nut. Understanding the social and cultural context of these practices is integral to helping patients alleviate and overcome adverse effects on oral health, human wellness, and global health. This course illustrates how culturally homogenous but geographically dispersed populations can have a profound effect on local dental practices as people migrate worldwide.

Make global connection and knowledge transfer about oral cancer, disease prevention, and oral health your superpower as you promote overall health. Participants will be powerfully engaged with graphic images and videos from 15 years of global research on cultural oral habits, with a specific focus on research based in Vietnam. Participant interaction is invited regarding the crisis in oral health in the dental practice and to motivate preventive solutions.

Course Objectives

1. Describe the benefits of awareness of oral cancer to both patient and provider.

2. Recognize the cultures which exhibit high oral risk behaviors and what those behaviors are.

3. Explain the results achieved through increased awareness of cultural risk habits.

4. Demonstrate skills and competence when seeing patients for oral exams to detect oral lesions.

5. Create a professional development plan to continue to learn and implement the awareness of global trends in oral cancer.
