Circadian Rhythms and Implications for Nutrition and Medicine (M30)

1:45 PM – 3:15 PM ET


  1. Describe the fundamentals of chronobiology, circadian entrainment, and relevant health implications when the circadian system gets chronically challenged, such as during shift work
  2. Explain the effects of different forms of intermittent fasting, including time-restricted feeding and alternate day fasting, on cardiometabolic health 
  3. Recognize systemic bias in the timing of drug administration that may conflict with circadian biology and affect therapeutic efficacy and safety
  4. Identify opportunities to align clinical practice with biological rhythms
