Statement of Need

Skin is widely known to reflect a person’s general inner-health status and aging, but do clinicians who treat patients’ skin think about what the skin may be saying about a patient’s overall health status?

Nutrition has a critical role in optimizing health and preventing disease, but few clinicians are aware of the data supporting dietary supplementation. With our aging population the link between nutrition, dietary supplementation, and healthy skin is a growing area of research and interest. Clinicians have not been trained to think about nutrition, key nutrients, and dietary supplements for healthy skin appearance, and they do not understand the physiopathologic process to support dietary supplementation for promoting the appearance of healthy skin.

In this CME Outfitters live symposium, expert faculty will guide learners in a virtual reality activity and utilize iPad interactive technology to discuss the role of nutrition, vitamins, and dietary supplements in promoting healthy skin allowing clinicians to make informed decisions and better care for their patients.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the role of key nutrients and dietary supplements in promoting healthy skin in your patients.
  • Evaluate the evidence to support the biologic plausibility of dietary supplements for promoting healthy skin in your aging patients.
  • Communicate with patients about the role of key nutrients and potentially dietary supplementation to promote healthy skin as part of the aging process.
