Digital Technology in Nutrition Education and Behavior Change
Chair: Tatyana El-Kour, MA, MS, RDN, FAND
Chair-Elect: Jared McGuirt, PhD, MPH
Technology is changing nutrition education and behavior change. As the experts in nutrition education and behavior change, SNEB members should understand and use technology innovations, but we must also assert our subject matter expertise in health behavior change. SNEB members have an important contribution to make in this area as digital technologies rarely leverage the power of the nutrition, social and behavioral sciences that we are the experts in. SNEB members — both researchers and practitioners — need to know about new technologies, how to engage with them, and how to evaluate when and how to use or recommend using them.
