Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, so what can you, as a credentialed expert, do to be at the top of search pages? Understand what interests your readers, prioritize content topics and identify specific keywords searched by your audience. You will learn the three primary ways of blogging- emotional sharing, content and SEO. We’ll dive deep into how to develop keyword themes based on an editorial calendar of content priorities. By the end of the session you will have a laser focus and new tools to help you boost the traffic you get from Google and other search engines.

Members of the SNEB Sustainable Food Systems Division will be especially interested in this post-conference session and the topic of Sunday night at the movies.

Developing and Promoting Sustainable Dietary Guidance
8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Wednesday, 8/3, Grand Balllroom C
Cost: $75 per person/ Breakfast included | 4 CEU
Moderator: Justin Fast, SNEB Division of Sustainable Food Systems
Speakers: Hugh Joseph, PhD, Tufts University, Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy; Jennifer L. Wilkins, PhD, RD, David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics; Syracuse University.
With SNEB now developing a position paper concerning sustainability, this is the perfect time to reflect on ‘sustainable diets’, a term introduced by Joan Gussow & Kate Clancy in ‘Dietary Guidelines for Sustainability’ (JNE, 1986). It took until 2015 before a serious effort was made (but ultimately rejected) to include sustainability in the 2016 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA).
Recent years have seen the emergence of several sustainable dietary guidelines, issued primarily by NGOs. However, many were based on limited evidence and omitted issues such as climate change, biodiversity and food security. Their development often reflected a lack of expertise relative to what goes into producing the DGA, resulting in weaker scientific standards of evidence. This suggests that intermediary roles for qualified professionals can be important to the guidance development process and to the integrity of guidelines. ‘Tufts Sustainable Diets Project’ (TSDP) is designing a framework to facilitate development of rigorously-designed sustainable dietary guidance that involves roles for professional intermediaries.
This workshop will address sustainable diets and associated guidelines development. We will initially explore key elements of sustainable diets and their connections to food systems. Participants will then be led through a decision-making exercise to navigate the links among global systems, food systems, and diets from sustainability approaches. Finally, we will address together the potential for DSFS members to develop a set of sustainable dietary guidelines, in sync with the emerging TSDP Framework protocols. If supported, an initial one-year action plan will be a key outcome of this workshop.
Primary focus of session: Research and Practice

 

Sunday Night at the Movies!

“Well Fed? The Health and Environmental Implications of Our Food Choices”

5:30 – 7:30 p.m., Sunday 7/31 Grand Ballroom C

Moderators: Mary Murimi, PhD, RD, Texas Tech University; Chris Taylor, PhD, RDN, LD, FAND, Ohio State University; Samantha Ramsay, PhD, RDN, LD, University of Idaho

What better way to expand your thinking than through group discussion after watching select video segments about food choice behaviors and our nation’s health! Learn from each other as moderators pose thought stimulating questions and foster intriguing dialogue among attendees. This unique session will both challenge and stimulate your thinking in nutrition education. Non-fat, low-fat, saturated fat, trans fats, healthy fats – in an era where we seem to be constantly bombarded with often conflicting messages about our diets, is all this information actually making us any healthier? How can we cut through media hysteria and make wise choices about the food we eat, and what impact do our consumption habits have, not just on our own health but that of the planet?

Presenters on the video: Professor Susan Jebb, Professor of Diet and Population Health, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford; Dr Tara Garnett, Principal Investigator, Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food; Professor Mike Rayner, Principal Investigator, Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food and Professor of Population Health, University of Oxford.

Day 87 – Bazaar del Mundo Shops

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Day 87 – Bazaar del Mundo Shops
May 052016
 

Indulge your inner shopaholic! Visit Bazaar del Mundo for unique items from around the world. Bazaar del Mundo offers a different kind of shopping experience in the lively and colorful Old Town community. This shopping area offers specialty items from Latin America and from around the world. Items for sale include art, clothing, jewelry and more.

Bazaar del Mundo also offers authentic Mexican food. The restaurants located here have won awards for their food, outdoor patio, and mariachi bands.

This is what people who have visited have to say:

“This place is fabulous. I wanted to buy one of everything. Unfortunately, I do not have the budget nor cabinet/counter/wall space to hold their amazing offerings of colorful dishes, linens, pottery, wall hangings, candles, dia de los muertos bride and groom statues, etc.”

“Truly, there is no place like this anywhere. The staff is always very accommodating and the BDM puts on a number of special weekend-long “meet the artists” events during the course of the year which take up the parking lot and bring in artists from all over the country and Mexico to sell their art to the public, again, at very attractive prices. The atmosphere is bright and friendly and this is just a very nice place to be.”
