Linking the Field to Your Client’s Plate

Building environmental awareness and sustainability principles into nutrition advice in simple ways

Bringing environmental perspective into a nutrition counseling session frequently takes a backseat to time constraints or providing other critical nutrition information. Given the significant body of science connecting environmental exposures to poor health outcomes,  nutrition practitioners need to find simple ways to include this educational aspect in their client sessions. In this session we will review current science literature linking environmental exposures to health outcomes.  We will then look at practical methods and tools that practitioners can use to incorporate the environmental conversation into nutrition education sessions. This session will include a variety of ready-to-use resources and tools enabling participants to immediately integrate resources into their professional setting
