The House of Delegates (HOD) selected the topic of Consumer Awareness and Changing Drivers of Food Choices for discussion at the Spring HOD virtual meeting. This topic and subtopics were identified from the Council on Future Practice’s (CFP) Visioning Report 2017: A Preferred Path Forward for the Nutrition and Dietetics Profession, the Academy’s Strategic Plan, and delegate input through HOD meetings and surveys. The subtopics generated under the umbrella topic of Consumer Awareness and Changing Drivers of Food Choices are food systems and sustainability, evidence-based practice, and communications. The dialogue will focus not only on shaping the nature of dietary guidance through research and translation, but also using the best available evidence to communicate nutrition information to consumers in light of changing drivers of food choice that include food systems and sustainability. This is where we need your help!
Please take this survey on communicating and shaping dietary guidance related to sustainability before Sunday, March 24, 2019. The survey should take approximately five minutes of your time. Results will be shared with the entire HOD to help inform the dialogue on March 30-31 during the Spring 2019 HOD Virtual Meeting. Thank you for your time.
