As today's consumers seek to understand where their food comes from and how it is produced, dietitians must be equipped to communicate and educate on topics of modern agriculture. This workshop kicks off with insights on embracing agricultural co-existence and building and delivering effective communications related to agriculture. Using real life examples and trending topics, attendees will practice message development within the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Code of Ethics and assess effective examples of communications related to agriculture. Dietitians will walk away with skills necessary to hone their communication skills and more effectively meet client needs as related to food and agriculture transparency.
After attending this session, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Define commonalities amongst modern agriculture methodologies.
- Increase effectiveness of communications on modern agriculture, ensuring alignment with the Code of Ethics.
- Develop messages and communication pieces on modern agriculture.
