More than Meets the Eye: How Unseen Factors Impact Nutrition & Health

Four years ago we had a BIG idea. What if we could throw a nutrition conference in Los Angeles and talk about the important issues that are not being addressed at the state and national conferences?

What if we could lead the discussion that would pave the way for future nutrition professionals? What if there was WAY more to it than most people think? And thus the conversation was BORN. Each year we have been sold out, and this year will be the most epic yet!

On behalf of LAD – Los Angeles District of California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics I am THRILLED to announce our line-up this year for our VIRTUAL EVENT “More than Meets the Eye: How Unseen Factors Impact Nutrition and Health” on Friday July 31, 2020.

If you have an interest in nutrition, join us for a full day of cutting edge information plus networking with like-minded individuals. We are offering 4 CPEs for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists. If you’re a student, intern, aspiring nutritionist, or just have a general interest in learning more about where the future of our field is headed, this event is for you!

More than Meets the Eye: Linking Nutrition & Behavioral Health

Today is Saturday March 28, 2020. The world is in quarantine due to COVID-19 and many are in a behavioral health crisis. I am not depressed about it although certainly concerned for the welfare of my fellows, particularly those in recovery. I have been conducting Zoom and FaceTime sessions with people all over the world and doing what I can to be helpful. I do have more time to work on manuscripts and other academic projects. Tonight I will be coding up some variables for a data analysis.

Last night I had the idea to share my latest presentation with my newsletter followers. So I spent an hour recording my latest presentation “More than Meets the Eye: Linking Nutrition & Behavioral Health.” I hope you enjoy!

The presentation discusses: Traumaadversitynutritioneating disorders, substance use disorders, opioid crisis, food addiction, neurosciencegut-brain axismicrobiome, recovery, treatment and so much more! Nutrition for behavioral health is the future!
