Nutrition in Clinical Practice: A Comprehensive Evidence-Based Manual for the Practitioner

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2001 - Spring


by David L. Katz, M.D., M.P.H. ’93, associate clinical professor of public health; Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (Philadelphia), 2000.

Comprehensive and sufficiently detailed to be of value to nutritionists, dietitians and clinical specialists, the book is intended to serve as the one nutrition reference non-specialists can rely on to answer almost all of the questions that come up in clinical practice. It is designed to help bring a consistent and meaningful dialogue about the role of nutrition in disease prevention and health promotion into the doctor-patient relationship.
