Stress Solutions for Today's Dietitian: Part 2
In Part 2 of this 2-Part series on Wednesday, August 16, 2017, from 2-3 PM EDT, Dr. Jo®, PhD, RDN, will help us realize that both real and imaginary situations can cause stress—leading to both short-term and long-term physiological changes in the body, including increases in blood pressure, blood glucose, and weight. Stress also leads to an increase in unhealthy behaviors including sleep loss and self-medicating in the form of tobacco, alcohol, and food. Therefore, it's imperative for registered dietitians to be able to evaluate stress in themselves and their clients, offer stress management strategies, and know when to refer to a mental health specialist.

Plant-based athlete and dietitian, Matthew Ruscigno, MPH, RD, brings this session to life by emphasizing key strategies for working with the plant-based athlete population in real life.
