Decreasing sodium intake of the population is a priority of the Million Hearts® Initiative. This webinar will present the public health rationale for reducing population sodium intake and address recent research that has called sodium recommendations into question. The aim is to help professionals make sense of the sodium science, clarify confusion about guidelines regarding salt and health, and provide a state and local example of successful implementation of sodium reduction guidelines.
At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Recognize sodium reduction strategies as one of the Million Hearts® priorities.
- Describe some of the reasons why research on sodium intake and health outcomes has produced inconsistent results.
- Identify nationally recommended sodium reduction guidelines.
- Discuss practical applications of sodium reduction guidelines at the state and local level
