Camire to take part in free webinar about nutritional supplements for older adults

Mary Ellen Camire, a University of Maine professor of food science and human nutrition, will discuss nutritional supplements in a webinar at noon Wednesday, April 21 via Zoom.

The free webinar is part of the AgingME Lunch and Learn series with UMaine and the University of New England, and is geared toward health and social service professionals, medical providers, caregivers and students. 

Camire, who also is a faculty associate with the UMaine Center on Aging, will discuss the value and potential risks of nutritional supplements for older adults. Learn which nutrients are needed as people age, as well as tips for boosting nutrition with food rather than supplements.

Certificates of attendance will be available. Attendees are invited to ask questions in the chat box; Camire is not able to make specific dietary recommendations.

Advance registration is required, including for those who wish to view the recorded presentation. Anyone with a disability who needs an accommodation to participate can email Camire at For more information, contact Alex Bromley, 207.581.1733;
