Why Nutrition Matters for Mental Health
In this plenary presentation, join Dr. LaChance as she explores what mental health is, why nutrition matters for mental health (and vice versa!) and what the latest science tells us about the impact of nutrition on the brain. You will learn that the secret of good mental health may start at the end of our forks!
