The Bee Marks Symposium and its speakers/presenters have been made possible by a fund established by Ketchum and supported by SNEB members and donors to honor nutrition communications pioneer, Bee Marks to advance nutrition marketing communications knowledge and best-practices that bring evidence-based nutrition science to the public in educational and motivational ways. Bea was open to diverse opinions and perspectives. She worked across sectors (i.e. industry, academic, etc.), and with SNEB and SNEB Foundation to bring these diverse perspectives together for productive conversation and planning.
While the Dietary Guidelines continue to outline science-based, gold standard health habits, few Americans follow them consistently. How do we change this trend with the 2015 Dietary Guidelines? How can nutrition educators apply new strategies of communications and leverage partnerships that span the field in a way that has a profound impact on behavior change and actual adoption with the new Guidelines? This session will include an expert panel to discuss this topic, provide their point of view from their unique perspective from their area of the field, and lead the audience in a dynamic discussion on how SNEB and its members can take their communication of the new Guidelines from Good to Great.
