This presentation explores the recent advances in dietary protein research that has the potential to help maintain muscle and improve outcomes in the aging population. Learn the importance of protein quality, quantity and distribution (consuming moderate protein at each meal) and how this approach can optimize muscle protein synthesis and maintain muscle health and functionality in older adults, across community and clinical settings. Presented by Douglas Paddon-Jones, PhD, FACSM
