Part 2 of a Joint Webinar Series: Renal Nutrition Guidelines: The RDN's Role in Stage Management of CKD | Presented by Laura Byham-Gray, PhD, RDN, FNKF, Janelle Gonyea, RDN, LD, FNKF | Thursday, April 23, 2020, 2-3:30 PM EDT | Earn 1.5 CPEUs
Thirty seven million American adults have chronic kidney disease (CKD) and millions of others are at increased risk to develop this condition. Early detection and treatment can help prevent the progression of CKD. Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is a cornerstone of the treatment plan.

On Thursday, April 23, 2020, from 2–3:30 PM EDT, join Laura Byham-Gray, PhD, RDN, FNKF, and Janelle Gonyea, RDN, LD, FNKF, for a joint Becky Dorner & Associates and Today's Dietitian webinar that will review the soon-to-be-published evidence-based Renal Nutrition Practice Guidelines with emphasis on earlier stage CKD. Through case study presentations and a review of available resources, RDNs will learn about key components of care for this patient population and how to provide individualized MNT to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.

Learning Objectives
1. Explain how MNT goals change as chronic kidney disease (CKD) progresses.
2. Examine and interpret the results of an Evidence Analysis Center systematic Review, and report on the efficacy of MNT provided by an RDN or international equivalent on primary goals of MNT.
3. Apply evidence-based findings from diverse case studies that represent the different stages of CKD.
