Recorded Webinar: The Path to Understanding Diabetes Care & Management in Communities of Color (Diabetes Bundle)

This webinar took place on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, from 2-3 p.m. ET.

Healthy eating behaviors are a gold standard when it comes to improving glycemic outcomes in diabetes care and management. The RD is adept at providing the latest evidence-based knowledge in food and nutrition for clients living with diabetes who desire to improve their glycemic outcomes. But what happens when evidence-based knowledge and lived experiences clash? How then, does the dietitian assist their clients in reaching their health and lifestyle goals?   

Join Kimberley Rose-Francis RDN, CDCES, CNSC, LD, for a webinar worth 1.0 CDR-approved ethics CEU* that discusses how lived experiences can have the greatest impact on blood sugar management and clarifies the path dietitians can take to help their clients meet their goals.

*The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy) and Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) are not responsible for the provider’s interpretation of the Academy/CDR Code of Ethics for the Nutrition and Dietetics Profession or its enforcement as it relates to the scenarios and content presented in this activity.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, nutrition professionals will be better able to:

  1. Detail the current evidence-based recommendations in diabetes care and management as they relate to food and nutrition.
  2. Explain how lived experiences may negatively impact glycemic levels and help clients find solutions that allow them to implement evidence-based recommendations successfully.
  3. Develop a plan to increase adherence to behaviors that can improve glycemic management when working with communities of color.
