How Does Trauma Impact Food and Body?
The biological embedding of adversity is a fascinating area of research! This presentation is from the Los Angeles District of California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual conference.
David Wiss MS RDN discusses how early life adversity impacts human biology. This presentation describes how social factors can get “under the skin” and alter neurobiology. Mr. Wiss discusses potential consequences such as sexual abuse and known links to eating behavior.
Do you have questions about biological embedding? Are you curious to learn more about the link between sexual abuse and eating disorders? Don’t hesitate to reach out!Read more
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!
