Nutrition educators essentially sell healthy behaviors – by increasing motivation and providing people with the knowledge and skills to make decisions. This session will guide nutrition researchers, and health practitioners and educators through methods, both qualitative and quantitative, used by market researchers to understand the various influences of eating behavior. Communications experts will also discuss effective strategies that effectively convey information that is meaningful to both professionals and the public. Attendees will be able to refer to a checklist of actionable steps to guide them when developing education strategies especially those targeted at diverse populations. Webinar is sponsored by the SNEB Communications Division and the SNEB Membership Committee.
