Join Us for an Exclusive Webinar Presentation - An In-Depth Look Into the Dietary Guidelines - Thursday, January 12, 2017, from 2-3 PM EST - Presented by Toby Amidor, MS, RD, CDN
Registered dietitians have had a year to examine, interpret and work with the 2015 Dietary Guidelines. In that time, the profession has gained a more thorough understanding of the changes to the Dietary Guidelines, as well as the implications of these changes. Moveover, there has been an opportunity to explore and resolve the numerous controversies regarding the Dietary Guidelines that emerged in the dietetics profession over the past year.

In this timely and thought-provoking webinar, Toby Amidor, MS, RD, CDN, will discuss what the first year of living with the 2015 Dietary Guidelines has revealed to registered dietitians. She will also explore practical strategies for counseling patients and clients in order to achieve the most current understanding of the Dietary Guidelines' recommendations.
