Presenters: Sarah Downs, MBA, RDN and JJ Jones from The Center for Food Integrity
Trust in our food supply and nutrition information is critical to the health of our nation, yet consumers are more skeptical than ever. What can we do to regain their trust and bring the credibility back to the profession? This session will review the historical perspective of the decline of trust; explore how individuals without nutrition expertise have gained a powerful voice in our food system; discuss how to communicate effectively with consumers to reach them with science-based nutrition information; and outline how to promote the health care professional as the expert to rebuild consumer trust in today’s food system. The Dairy Council of California is sponsoring this webinar.
Learning Objectives:
• Practice values-based communication skills to engage more effectively with consumers, patients, clients and colleagues and build trust using the power of shared values.
• Provide balance and perspective to the food and nutrition dialog through meaningful connections with consumers, clients and patients.
• Utilize tools and strategies to rebuild consumer trust in nutrition science and the food supply, positioning the nutrition and health professional as the experts.
Attendees will earn 1 CPE from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
Cost: SNEB Members attend webinars free as a benefit of membership. Non-member cost is $25 but the first 100 non-members to register receive complimentary registration as a guest of the Dairy Council of California.

Persons with low resources, such as housing, money, healthcare and basic daily needs, may be aware of assistance in their area but are not matched to those services. Nutrition educators are located throughout most communities ready to teach. Challenges occur between communicating what type of services are available to the specific group and finding a match to those best able to teach. This session will discuss what challenges educators face in their specific locations, and provide opportunity for those persons on the webinar to share ideas with each other. Educators will be engaged in learning new ideas to program more effective with those in need. The SNEB Public Health Nutrition Division will be sponsoring this event.
Learning Objectives:
1. Discuss programming challenges related to persons with low resources.
2. Identify four new ideas to create successful programming efforts.
3. Describe approaches that engage participants in life long positive health behaviors.

    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.
