Upcoming SNEB Events

There are thousands of apps for that – navigating mobile technology for nutrition education and behavior

Presenters:
Melanie Hingle, PhD, MPH, RD, University of Arizona
Heather Patrick, PhD, Envolve PeopleCare
It is our view that the answer to the question of whether and how mobile health technologies can impact health behavior – particularly, dietary behavior – cannot be answered by building another app, but rather, by understanding that the “best” app or technology-based approach for dietary behavior change is relative – and the full potential of these technologies has yet to be realized in both research and practice. This controversy will be discussed by the authors, and will address when and for whom “mHealth” is the “best” solution, mHealth and long-term behavior change, and challenges for researchers and practitioners.
The participant will:
1. Understand the issues underlying mHealth research, especially related to nutrition.
2. Be able to apply concepts related to mHealth limitations and benefits to their programs or research.
3. Be able to contribute to the dialogue for research and practice agenda related to nutrition mHealth.

Why We Buy What We Buy: Anatomy of a Supermarket Purchase
Join us for a webinar on Apr 13, 2016 at 2:00 PM EDT | Register
Presenters:
Emily Snyder is Nutrition Policy Associate at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, where she works on the healthy checkout campaign.
Dr. Deborah Cohen is a Senior Scientist at the RAND Corporation and the author of the book, “A Big Fat Crisis—The Hidden Forces Behind the Obesity Epidemic and How We Can End It.”
Priya Fielding-Singh is a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at Stanford University studying food, health, and inequality.

Many shoppers have healthy intentions—for example, they want to lose weight or eat more vegetables—but find it difficult. One reason is that retail marketing affects food choices, often in ways that are hidden or beyond conscious cognition. To promote effective nutrition education and healthy behavior, nutrition educators need to understand the science behind why people buy what they buy. This session will explore the ways supermarkets get shoppers to buy more food and certain products. Presenters will share approaches that empower shoppers to buy food consistent with their intentions, including environmental and policy solutions and personal shopping strategies. The SNEB Public Health Nutrition Division will be sponsoring this event.
Learning Objectives:
1: Participants will be able to discuss the science behind why people buy the food and beverages they buy.
2: Participants will be able to identify at least five ways supermarkets get shoppers to buy more and certain types of food.
3: Participants will be able to describe approaches that empower shoppers to buy food more consistent with their intentions, including environmental and policy solutions as well as personal shopping strategies.
Attendees will earn 1 CPE from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

    Next Practices Help You Create the Future

    “Recently I have realised that ‘next practice’ is not about the goal, it is about the journey. In most cases this is going to take a fair bit of learning from others, of looking at the current ‘best practice’, but fundamentally I think it is not about emulation but about a research based approach to constant evaluation and development. ‘Next practice’ is a commitment to a process not an end product. In moving from ‘best practice’ to ‘next practice’ we acknowledge that the best solutions come from development,” wrote Oliver Quinlan, author of The Thinking Teacher.
