Educating Consumers and Healthcare Professionals On Benefits of Omega-3
NCE Blue Legasea and GOED arranged a webinar on the topic of benefits of Omega-3s.
The topic of the webinar was "Educating Consumers and Healthcare Professionals on Benefits of Omega-3s", and took place on the 28th of May.
Most consumers and health practitioners know what omega-3s are, yet they still aren’t getting even close to the amounts they need. This webinar examined why that may be, what we need to do about it and how best to communicate to these two similar but distinct audiences.
Participants were given an overview on the latest research on omega-3s and why there needs to be an emphasis on EPA and DHA omega-3s specifically. The webinar also reviewed consumer survey data on awareness of omega-3s and who is most trusted for health and wellness advice.
