SCAN 2020 Symposium
We were looking forward to seeing many of you at the SCAN 2020 Symposium, Revolutionizing Performance Nutrition. The Symposium Committee is working diligently to finalize plans for a rescheduled 2021 Symposium in Boston, Mass. Instead of waiting a full year to hear some of the latest research and practice information, SCAN is hosting a handful of sessions for you via webinar. We hope you can join us for these exciting live sessions throughout April and May! Unable to attend live? No problem -- the sessions will be recorded and delivered to all registrants. One CPE credit hour will be awarded for live attendance, or for viewing a recorded session (code 175 activity type). Visit the Symposium page for more information.

     

What should Dietitians, Coaches and Athletes Know about Glycogen Metabolism?

Speakers: Bob Murray and Chris Rosenbloom

Coaches and athletes are understandably confused by the mixed messages they hear and read about the value of dietary carbohydrate. Should athletes fast? Can performance benefit from ketosis? What is periodized nutrition? Is fat a better fuel source than carbohydrate? If enhanced fat burning is the key to better performance, should we care about muscle glycogen? Is carbohydrate loading necessary? Can purposefully reducing glycogen stores promote fat burning and better performance? Isn't glycogen only of concern to endurance athletes?

New research both clarifies and complicates our understanding of the importance of muscle (and liver) glycogen to not only fuel muscular activity but to promote the intracellular adaptations that are essential to improved performance. This webinar highlights our evolving understanding of the role glycogen plays in adaptation, recovery, and performance, including practical messages to help educate and guide coaches and athletes in the effective use of nutrition achieve their performance goals.

Unscrambling the Dietary Cholesterol Confusion

Speaker: Kevin C. Maki, PhD, CLS

March 31, 2020
1:00 - 2:00 pm CST

Despite decades of research, the associations between dietary cholesterol consumption and risks for cardiovascular disease and mortality remain controversial. Adding to this controversy are the confusing recommendations in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The Guidelines state that cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern for overconsumption, but also recommend that individuals should consume as little dietary cholesterol as possible while following a healthy eating pattern.

2019 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease: Part 1, Lifestyle and Behavioral Factors – An Important Role for Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists

Speaker: Penny Kris-Etherton, PhD, RDN, FNLA

February 5th, 2020
2:00 - 3:00 pm CST

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death globally. In the U.S. approximately 1 in 3 deaths are due to CVD. From about 1900 until 2010, the total number of Americans dying from CVD decreased. From 2011 to 2014, deaths from CVD increased. More recent evidence has shown that Americans are dying of heart disease and stroke at rising rates in middle age (45-64 years) mainly due to increases in risk factors (overweight/obesity, high blood pressure, glucose and lipids) that are affected by poor lifestyle habits (eg, diet).

The 2019 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Primary Prevention of CVD: Part 1, Lifestyle and Behavioral Factors incorporates existing guidelines, statements and consensus reports into a comprehensive resource for patients, health care professionals and public health officials. The report makes recommendations for the prevention of CVD with healthy lifestyle behaviors (nutrition, physical activity, weight management and tobacco use) and treatment factors (eg, risk assessment, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, diabetes and aspirin use). This webinar will describe the recommendations for lifestyle and behavioral factors. The level of evidence for all recommendations will be presented.

Nutraceuticals for Lowering LDL-C: A Review of the Evidence

Note: CPE credits are not available.

The global nutraceutical market (including both functional foods and dietary supplements) is expected to reach $578.23 billion by 2025, and a search for "cholesterol-lowering supplements" on an online shopping site yields over 600 results. Patients are seeking out natural methods of treating hypercholesterolemia, and dietitians must be equipped to support them with evidence-based recommendations. While not intended to replace pharmacological therapy, many nutraceuticals can help achieve treatment targets, particularly in patients with mild to moderate lipid elevations, statin-intolerant patients, and patients on pharmacological treatment but not quite at goal. This webinar will review the evidence behind common LDL-lowering nutraceuticals, focusing on those with well-designed studies to demonstrate their efficacy. Upon completion, you will be able to identify nutraceuticals to consider, either alone or in conjunction with pharmaceuticals, in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia, along with dosing information, possible side effects, and anticipated LDL-C improvements.
