Last Chance to Register! - The Sustainability and Nutrition Connection - Wednesday, January 24, 2018, from 2-3 PM EST - Presented by Danielle Nierenberg, founder of FoodTank, and Chris Vogliano, MS, RD
Our food choices matter beyond our health and have a lasting impact on the world at large. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines Scientific Committee Report noted, “Consistent evidence indicates that, in general, a dietary pattern that is higher in plant-based foods ... is more health promoting and is associated with lesser environmental impact ([greenhouse gas] emissions and energy, land, and water use) than is the current average US diet.” Sustainable diets can improve the health of people and our environment.

In this webinar, Danielle Nierenberg, founder of Food Tank, the fastest growing nonprofit in the food movement, will walk participants through the basics of sustainable food and discuss legislation and policy on sustainability in the United States.

To help you connect with patients on sustainability, Chris Vogliano, MS, RDN, will provide evidence-supported recommendations and clear communication strategies for RDs and DTRs to integrate into their practices. Patients and clients are seeking specific, actionable recommendations on sustainable nutrition, and this webinar will help you meet that demand.
