Washington State Webinar: Today's Food Conversation

Wednesday, February 07, 2018  Join us at 4 p.m. Pacific for a 1-hour webinar.

Speaker: Amy Myrdal Miller, MS, RDN, FAND

Every day in this country our food conversations are becoming more interesting, intense, and challenging. We’re striving for health and wellness. We’re passionate about local and artisan products. We’re thoughtful about seasonal and organic. We’re working to figure out sustainable. And we’re nervous about genetically modified. This one-hour session will take a deep-dive into nine commonly used terms related to food, agriculture, and nutrition—from healthy and fresh to processed, natural, and sustainable—providing insights into the science that supports or refutes various claims, reviewing federal regulations that govern marketing, and shedding light on consumer understanding of these terms.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Distinguish which food claims are marketing hype versus federally regulated terms.
• Identify federal agencies that oversee various marketing terms.
• Provide science-based guidance to patients and clients regarding the nutrition and health as well as lifestyle benefits of a variety of foods and beverages.

A handout and CPEU certificate will be available to Washington State Academy members.
