Diet and lifestyle modifications have been shown to be the primary treatment approach for individuals with PCOS. Despite this importance, there is a lack of information being presented in dietetic curriculums about the condition. People with PCOS may seek out help from a registered dietitian only to become more frustrated if he or she doesn’t seem to really know PCOS.
Here are some examples of what I hear from patients who have seen a dietitian before coming to work with me:
“I saw a dietitian once but I don’t feel she gave me any more information than I already knew.”
“The dietitian didn’t know anything about the supplements I was interested in taking to help my PCOS.”
“My dietitian put me on a standard diabetic diet.”
If you are seeing more and more patients with PCOS (and hopefully you are since it’s the most common endocrine disorder in women of childbearing ages), this course can help you feel more confident and proficient in helping your patients take control over their PCOS and feel better.

The Role of the Dietitian in Treating PCOS
“One of the best investments I have made! ”
“I loved the course! It was research focused but very application based. I am SO much more prepared to help my patients with PCOS. ”
“It is clear that Ms. Grassi is a expert in the field of PCOS. This is a comprehensive presentation of the literature from diagnosis to treatment options and from young and older women with PCOS. Dietitians working in women’s health would greatly appreciate this course.”
“This course is amazing! You've blown my expectations out of the water and I am thrilled to have this much information to learn about PCOS. Thank you so much for putting this course together!”
“Once I started on Module 1 I couldn't wait to move onto the next Module. Going through this course was like reading a great book that you can't put down. Angela presented the information in an organized format with a lot of practical ideas and suggestions for clients/patients. It was so helpful to learn new information on PCOS based on the most current research presented in this course. The handouts, resources and case studies are an extra benefit. ”
“This course provided me the evidenced-based data I needed to help support my clients in making informed and empowered choices about their health. After taking this course, I am more confident in my work and feel that I am provided the best care that I can for my clients.”
“Enjoyable and useful course with lots of great information!”
“This course was amazing!! There are so many patients I can help with this information and I am excited to share my knowledge. Thank you for sharing yours!”
“I just wanted to say thank you for all of the work you put into the course for dietitians! It’s saved me SO much time doing research on my own and has really enhanced my confidence in this area! Thank you for sharing your expertise. ”
“My specialty is eating disorder treatment but as you are aware, so many of my clients also have PCOS. I appreciate the incredible amount of work that went into your presentation and course preparation. Thank you so much for this very valuable service and ongoing resource. ”
“As an outpatient dietitian, I see many conditions requiring nutrition and diet changes. Whenever I saw a diagnosis of PCOS in the nutrition referral, I always felt incapable of providing the most up to date nutrition recommendations. Now I feel fully equipped with the knowledge, resources, and applications to help this patient population. Thank you! ”
“This course is invaluable! ”
“This course is the best PCOS course I've taken (I've taken many). It is evidence based and makes so much sense. Thanks Angela!”
“Angela Grassi’s PCOS course is your simple, straightforward guide to understanding PCOS pathology and treatment options. If you’re an RD interested in getting started with this population, feeling overwhelmed with different supplement options, or looking for evidence-based resources, this course is a great place to start!”
“This course has not only helped me become a more knowledgeable provider for my patients, but also helped me to gain control of my own PCOS! Angela is a wealth of knowledge and her course is so well put together. The Facebook group is also an incredible resource as we can all trouble-shoot amongst each other! I HIGHLY recommend this course! ”
“Thank you very much for this fantastic course! It is worth every penny! The information and evidence is presented clearly. All the information is reviewed critically as well. The practical information that you share from your own experience and during the case studies is invaluable. I am so excited to help more people with this condition after taking the course, because I feel more confident in my recommendations! Thank you! ”
“As our number with patients with PCOS increases, the knowledge obtained in this well-organized webinar is incredible. It helps me as the team RD to provide important easy-to-follow lifestyle directions to our young patients. Thanks Angela!”

You will have lifetime access to the course and course updates, along with access to a private facebook group where I answer questions live, that is only available to registrants from the course.
