RD Real Talk - Registered Dietitians Keeping it Real

Feb 14, 2019

How can we practice more weight-inclusivity in healthcare? In dietetics? Why does this approach feel threatening, and divisive? What can we do about the lack of diversity in dietetics?

Weight Inclusive Nutrition and Dietetics (WIND) Workshop recording:

These aren’t easy questions to answer, or even talk about. But it’s necessary that we look at these issues and get ready to take them on. It’s imperative that we stop promoting and engaging weight-based discrimination. It’s unethical to suggest weight-loss is always a path to better health.

In this panel discussion, and first ever live podcast recording for the show, you’ll hear dietitians Alissa Rumsey, Beth Rosen, Jennifer McGurk, and Heather Caplan (me). This was preceded by three continuing education sessions (outlined here), which are now recorded webinars available for purchase!
