Webinar – Modern Diets: Fact vs. Fad


As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and cancellation of our spring conference, we are pleased to offer two CPE credits that will be complimentary to our members!  Due to much interest around this hot topic, our original keynote speaker will present a webinar on Intermittent Fasting on Friday, April 24th, 2020!  Additionally, students and/or faculty will present their posters on the latest nutrition research.  Don’t miss this exciting opportunity from the comfort of your own home!

11:30 am- 12:30 pm: Modern Diets: Fact vs. Fad

Speaker: Abby Langer, RD, owner of Abby Langer Nutrition in Toronto, Canada.
As dietitians, we must be savvy of “popular” diets in order to answer client questions and provide evidenced-based information. Abby will provide you with a working knowledge of intermittent fasting and other modern diets. You will improve your ability to interpret nutrition research and whether or not it supports a particular eating plan. The ways in which the media exaggerates nutrition research and the importance of being open-minded with our clients will be discussed.
