Suggested CDR Learning Codes: 1130, 1140, 6010, 6020; Level 2
Do you ever feel frustrated that messages from the media or industry seem to get through to your clients or consumers better than your credible insights? Despite dietitians’ focus on scientific evidence, we too can sensationalize our messages while staying true to the facts. This session will provide a point of view from dietitian Jenna A. Bell, PhD, RD, based on her work at Pollock Communications. She’ll talk about how RDs can apply some of the strategies that industry and media employ to bring attention to the practice of sound nutrition.
After attending this session, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Develop a messaging plan of action based on the target audience.
- Describe the process of developing key messages.
- Determine the appropriate channel of communication to reach a desired outcome.
- List considerations when creating key messages.
