Webinar: Bites of Insight: RDNs’ Perspectives on Navigating Nutrition Now

September 23, 2020

Complimentary Webinar on Nutrition in a Pandemic World

As we continue to grapple with the effects of COVID-19, how have RDNS responded, reframed, and repositioned to stay employed, connected, and relevant?

A survey of 1,076 practitioners in various work settings conducted from May to June 2020 sheds light on the impact of the pandemic on the field of dietetics. Respondents’ perceptions on consumers and clients’ areas of concern and desired information has opened the door for innovative and creative ways to educate, communicate, and motivate. As health care professionals we must follow the science, combat disinformation, and resonate with relevance.

Join Leslie Bonci, MPH, RD, CSSD, LDN, on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 from 2-3 p.m. ET, for a webinar that will teach you how to survive and thrive as a dietitian in a pandemic world.
