Training Overview Description

Healthy Eating in Practice is a hands-on CME conference for practitioners, researchers, and influencers, focused on changing the culture of healthcare to better support healthy eating behaviors, particularly in children and families, and prevent chronic diet-related diseases.

The World Health Organization estimates that by 2020 two-thirds all deaths will be attributable to chronic preventable diseases, most of them strongly associated with diet, including obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and stroke. Treating these diseases is expensive, and often it isn’t working. We know that diet and lifestyle modifications are better solutions, particularly in early childhood, when instilling lifelong habits can positively impact the whole family. But it can be difficult to make changes in our clinical practice.

Grounded in experiential learning, this national conference will equip attendees to address the root causes of these chronic diseases. Through participatory workshops (including hands-on cooking instruction), farm field trips, peer learning, and panels and presentations from leading practitioners, researchers, and policy experts, attendees will gain practical skills and approaches that work in day-to-day life.

Event-specific Details

In addition to presentations by leading practitioners, researchers, and policy experts, attendees will visit area farms, farmers markets, and gardens. Participatory cooking workshops will be team taught by nutrition experts alongside local chefs. Daphne Miller, M.D., author of Farmacology, will give a keynote address on the intersection of farming, food, and health. CME, CNE, and other continuing education credits are available.
