Description

What do you do if a Spanish speaking patient needs nutrition education, but you can't communicate with them?  What if your patient has a question about carb counting but you can’t explain?  Healthcare providers can easily find themselves in such situations, and you want to be prepared. 
When your Spanish speaking clients nod and say “Si, Si”…do they really understand?
Our Nutrition Spanish course is the perfect solution. This simple and enjoyable Nutrition Spanish for Medical Professionals course will give you the basic tools you need to bridge the communication gap and provide culturally sensitive nutrition education.
With many Spanish-speaking patients requiring nutrition counseling, it's more crucial than ever for health professionals to learn nutrition Spanish. What's more, adding Spanish skills to your resume can broaden your career horizons and give you an advantage over other healthcare workers. 
This course focuses on the basic nutrition Spanish phrases you really need to know when working with clients who need nutritional education. It includes so much more than just nutrition lingo…you will learn about Hispanic culture related to food, barriers to Hispanic culture, popular and favorite from different Hispanic countries, kitchen equipment and more!
Whether you're new to the language or just want a refresher, this nutrition Spanish class can help you.
