Webinar: Diet-related Health Disparities
What: join PAND in welcoming Mayra Crespo-Bellido, who will be giving a presentation about nutritional disparities and the role dietitians play in addressing these issues.
When: Thursday, December 3rd at 7:00pm
Where: over Zoom, from the comfort of your home!
Description: diet-related health disparities have been identified for many minority and underserved groups. This webinar intends to bring a critical framework that dissects (1) the underlying causes of nutritional disparities, (2) identifies the structural contexts allowing these disparities, (3) the effect of individuals' self-reliance in navigating these contexts, and (4) the role of dietitians in addressing these issues. By the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Discuss the interplay of structural context and individuals’ agency in food choices and nutritional disparities.
- Use reflexivity principles to critically examine personal beliefs, knowledge, and social positionality on this topic.
- Apply practical tips to improve understanding of target populations’ systemic barriers to food access, and encourage resilient, healthy food acquisition practices among clients.
- Plan the next steps to incorporate food justice activism into daily dietetics practice.
