Transforming the Mindset of Hunger
Hunger lurks everywhere in the United States—and few of us feel it. Approximately 40 million people, including 12 million children, struggle to find their next meal.

In this presentation, Clancy Cash Harrison, MS, RDN, FAND, will review two common misconceptions surrounding food insecurity and explain how making one simple change will improve health outcomes. This topic will be examined even further by Clancy in another upcoming presentation. Click here to register »

Recorded Webinar: Nutritional Approach to Management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a complex, heterogeneous gastrointestinal disorder that impacts 40-45 million Americans. Food related symptoms are reported frequently in this population. The low FODMAP diet effectively manages symptoms in 50-70% of IBS patients. As there is growing interest in nutritional approaches for IBS symptom management, dietitians should understand how diet may impact functional gut symptoms as well as apply a low FODMAP diet when working with this population. As an evolving nutritional approach, up to date food composition and the latest research will be reviewed. Expires for credit on June 27, 2019, at 11:59 PM EDT.
