Exploring Telenutrition: Evidence, Operationalization, and Opportunities
Nina Crowley, PhD, RD & Molly Jones RD, LD
Are you interested in learning more about the emerging field of telenutrition? The recently released CDC National Center for Health Statistics report revealed that the prevalence of obesity continues to rise in the United States, affecting nearly 40% of adults and close to 20% of youth. Education and support for these individuals remains an unfilled need and telehealth is being utilized more and more to provide an efficient and potentially effective way of delivering nutritional care and counseling. Join two pioneers in telehealth for an overview of this rapidly developing technology. Attendees will be guided through the evidence base for telenutrition and will learn about a successful telehealth program including how it was operationalized and implemented at Medical University of South Carolina. Participants will also explore opportunities for using this viable tool for delivering nutritional care and education.
