Description

Nutritional deficiencies are strongly linked to chronic disease, yet most dietary templates focus on energy consumption and/or macronutrients and not nutrient sufficiency. Even recommendations that focus on food quality typically fall short in essential nutrients. In this presentation, Dr. Ballantyne will discuss the link between nutrient deficiencies and disease, the source of common nutrient shortfalls in healthy diets, and strategies why nutrient density should be the primary determinant of food value.

Objectives

Understand the role of nutrients
Explain the complex roles that nutrients have in preserving health and preventing disease
Determine the value of foods
Evaluate the merits of an individual food based on nutrient-density.
Practical application
Individualize a dietary framework based on nutrient sufficiency.

Sarah Ballantyne, PhD
on behalf of National University of Health Sciences

Sarah started her academic career in physics, earning an Honors Bachelor of Science with Distinction from the University of Victoria, Canada in 1999. Her honors thesis work was in radiation therapy for prostate cancer, which prompted her to look for medical research applications in graduate school. Sarah earned her doctorate degree in medical biophysics at The University of Western Ontario in 2003, at the age of 26. Her doctoral thesis was titled “Progressive Liver Injury During the Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome: Heme Oxygenase as a Therapeutic Target”. Her doctoral research spanned the gamut of inflammation, innate immunity, endogenous anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant enzymes, gene therapy techniques, microcirculation and vascular biology, liver health, and critical care medicine.

Sarah spent the next four years doing medical research as a postdoctoral fellow, first at in the Cardiology Department at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Canada, and then in the Department of Cell Biology at The University Of Arizona. In Toronto, Sarah continued her research in the fields of innate immunity, inflammation, vascular biology, critical care medicine, and gene therapy, with a new focus on Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and the role of angiogenic growth factors in controlling inflammation and the innate immune system. In Tucson, Sarah switched gears and studied epithelial cell biology with particular focus on trafficking of proteins required for tight junction assembly, maintenance of epithelial cell polarity, and characterization of a new tumor suppressor called endotubin (which suppressed epithelial to mesenchymal transformations through maintenance of tight junction integrity). Sarah’s focus included cell trafficking (how cells shuttle proteins from one part to another in a targeted way) and cancer biology.
