Rethink the way our country approaches food, nutrition, and health with this case based self-study course!
This continuing professional education (CPE) self-study course includes required reading of a written testimony provided to the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry’s Subcommittee on Food and Nutrition, Specialty Crops, Organics, and Research. The five experts that testified were charged with summarizing the state of nutrition in the U.S. from their unique perspectives which include cardiology, Native American/Alaska Native health, poverty and nutrition assistance programs, health of black populations, and the connection of agriculture to hunger, nutrition, and economic health.
The Subcommittee on Food and Nutrition, Specialty Crops, Organics, and Research acknowledged that America is facing a crisis of diet-related diseases, food and nutrition insecurity, disparities in the availability of nutritious foods to some populations in the county, and an economic burden related to treating diet-related chronic health conditions. They agree that we need to rethink the way our country approaches food, nutrition, and health. The written testimony from the five experts outlined the issues they have each identified, and presented possible solutions that could be addressed by a proposed White House Conference on Food, Hunger, and Health.
A case-study based CPE exam drawn from the written testimony allows the reader to apply the information presented to their professional knowledge and work settings.
This course is appropriate for registered dietitian nutritionists and educators, especially those who have an interest in national nutrition policy, hunger, and racial and ethnic health care disparities.
