The registered dietitian nutritionist is essential in the treatment of eating disorders. This session will leave you engaged, entertained, and inspired to integrate the newly published Standards of Practice and Professional Performance for Eating Disorders from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics into your clinical practice.

This interactive case-study presentation will include topics such as culinary medicine therapies, legislative advocacy, advancing educational offerings, and impact of nutritional neuropsychology on feeding behaviors. Attendees will offer live feedback through audience polling to guide the course of treatment throughout the presentation. Practical lessons in professionalism and medical ethics from veterans in the field of eating disorder treatment will also be discussed. Furthermore, attendees will gain essential training necessary for all RDNs who will encounter this population in practice–especially those seeking specialization.
