In this presentation on Wednesday, May 29, 2019, from 2-3 pm EDT, Clancy Cash Harrison, MS, RDN, FAND, will inspire participants to identify and transform counseling techniques for food-insecure clients at risk of malnutrition. Attendees will be able to bridge the knowledge gap between the overall health of clients and food insecurity. Clancy will demonstrate how effective community partnerships and the use of Food Insecurity/Food Banking Supervised Practice Concentration can help integrate more dietetic interns into the world of food insecurity within any practice setting. This topic will be examined even further by Clancy in an upcoming presentation this fall.

- Describe the role of RDs in food insecurity and recognize misconceptions surrounding poverty and food insecurity.
- Distinguish patients at risk of malnutrition related to food insecurity and explain the connection between food insecurity and overall health.
- Identify innovative solutions to fight local hunger, including the use of dietetic interns.
