Thanks to a generous educational grant from Mrs. Dash, we are offering all members a free 4 hour CEU self study program on Implementing Successful and Effective MNT for Hypertension. Author: Becky Dorner, RD, LD Course Description: This program highlights the causes and prevalence of hypertension, its affects on health and its relationship to other diseases; and the benefits for proper treatment. Medical nutrition therapy is emphasized as a major treatment due to its potentially positive impact on factors that help prevent and/or treat hypertension (including weight control and the DASH diet).

1.) denote the difference between prehypertension and hypertension
2.) list three disease states that may develop as a result of hypertension
