UPCOMING webinar
The Way We Eat: Looking Beyond Nutrients to Help Clients Build Better Diets

May 14, 2012 | 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET

This session, sponsored by the Dairy Council of California, will outline how our “food landscape” has changed over the past 50 years and list the nine roles that food plays in our lives. The attendee will learn how these factors are inextricably linked to food choices, and how successful dietary advice needs to incorporate social, cultural, ethical, environmental, emotional as well as physical factors. The session will end with counseling strategies that the health professional can use to incorporate the factors influencing food choices that motivate their client, affecting positive behavior change to the ultimate goal of improving their health.

Presenters include
Mary Young, Ms, RD, Senior Food and Nutrition Strategist, Edelman Public Relations
Polly Adema, PhD, Cultural Anthropologist
Laura Thomas, MED, RD, LD, Laura Thomas Nutrition Communications

Reference Articles in Press NOW

You no longer have to wait for hot research to come to print before referencing it!  Articles in Press (AiP) are all articles accepted for publication.  AiP are assigned an unique digital object identifier (DOI). The DOI may be used to cite and link to electronic documents. The assigned DOI never changes. Therefore it is ideal for citing documents, particularly AiP which have not yet received their full bibliographic information.  When citing the article, include author(s), year and article title information in the format of the journal reference style and also include the full DOI.  To view full-text Article in Press, go to: http://www.jneb.org/inpress.
