Rapid economic development, cross border trade and advance agriculture technologies have revolutionized Asian food culture and lifestyle. The continent has been dubbed a nutrition time bomb where the disease burden is shifting rapidly from communicable and infectious diseases to non-communicable chronic diseases (NCDs). The public health threat in Asia is an opportunity to recognize the role of the dietitian in facilitating dietary behavior and lifestyle changes. Yet the number of dietitians in majority of Asian countries are less than 1/100 000 population. Dietitians in Asia face challenges such as inadequate legislation, variations in education standards and lack of professional autonomy. Despite these, you will obtain key insights into the role of AFDA and inspiring case examples from several countries on the way forward for Asian dietetics. Planned with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation

Explain how the rapid economic transition and multi-cultural factors impact diet, nutrition and health status in Asian populations

Describe a situational analysis of dietetics development in the scenario of a double burden of malnutrition in Asia

Cite the role of AFDA (Asian Federation of Dietetics Associations) and case examples of successful initiatives in advocating for recognition of dietitians as a way forward for Asian dietetics

Although we are making progress in the prevention and control of obesity, severe obesity has increased in both pediatric and adult patients. Population-based strategies continue to expand, but the caloric deficits achieved by these initiatives will not help those affected by severe obesity. Use of people first language represents an important clinical and public health strategy that is likely to change perceptions of obesity, and shift the debate from obesity as an identity to obesity as a disease. Because the treatment of obesity exceeds the capacity of health care systems, a new paradigm that integrates clinical and community systems will be required.

Adopt people first language to reduce the stigma associated with obesity

Identify new roles and strategies for nutrition, physical activity, and wellness that will emerge from the integration of clinical and community ecosystems

Improve obesity treatment based on recognition of the limits of physical activity and the importance of adverse childhood experiences

Dietary recommendations for youth athletes should emphasize optimal eating patterns to support health, normal growth and sport participation demands, through a balanced and appropriate intake of macronutrients, vitamins and minerals at the appropriate time developmentally. Moreover, it is essential to emphasize sufficient hydration and minimize any measurable sweat induced body water deficits that can negatively affect performance and, in some athletic scenarios, can be a danger to a young athlete's health and safety, especially during vigorous physical activity in a warm-to-hot environment. Informed dietitians can play a key role as a trusted resource in providing the most effective and practical sports nutrition guidelines and recommendations for youth athletes.

Join us to hear a panel of respected former Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) members discuss their perspectives of how the Dietary Guidelines have evolved and how, as leaders in nutrition, we can look ahead to the future and help make the 2015 guidelines actionable. A diverse, dynamic group of former DGAC members will review the process of creating the Guidelines, discuss the existing and emerging science base that was used to create the DGA 2015, and entrenched controversies that may confuse the public. Together, the audience and the panel will discuss what has previously worked with the public in terms of translating the DGA, what has not worked, and what might help to make the 2015 DGA more accessible and effective. Finally, as we begin to look towards 2020, gaps in nutrition science will be reviewed by the panel. Audience participation, including questions, suggestions, commentary, and experiences, will be a part of this interactive session. Participants will gain insights and a better understanding of the depth and rigor that goes into developing the guidelines and the role they can play in their translation to the public. Also, attendees will better understand how the DGA process can be used to inform nutrition messaging throughout the U.S. from our federal and state nutrition safety net programs to everyday food choices at home and away from home.

Ninety percent of children with autism are at nutritional risk resulting in higher rates of lifestyle related chronic disease in adulthood. Prevention starts in childhood but sensory processing challenges, gastrointestinal disorders and social interaction impairments can be barriers to achieving nutritional health. This session summarizes information necessary for the dietitian to consider to provide successful nutrition intervention.

Participants will be able to effectively assess for gastrointestinal dysfunction in individuals with autism.

At the completion of the session, using evidenced based materials, participants will be able to adapt medical nutrition therapy to address gastrointestinal dysfunction in children with autism.

Participants will be able to adjust nutrition assessment and treatment reflecting current research regarding sensory and motor challenges in individuals with autism.

Our sense of taste has more influence than just how much we like or dislike a food or beverage. It also associated with the amount we consume and how it can prevent or even contribute to a wide variety of chronic diseases. An individual's sensitivity to bitter and sweet foods may determine their food choices, the nutrients they consume, and their risks of chronic diseases. This session highlights case studies with practical applications for RDN's whether clinicians, practitioners, food and recipe developers or others in the food and nutrition fields.Planned with the Academy Committee for Professional Development

Define and identify the continuum of taste sensation sensitivity

Identify chronic disease risks associated with variation in bitter and sweet taste phenotypes

Interpret and apply recent advances in taste biology to better understand clients' palate and chronic disease risks

Although there is evidence on the intake of omega-3 fatty acids across the population, there is limited evidence on dietary consumption of omega 3 fatty acid during pregnancy and the effect on infants. Evidence to support dietary intervention to improve health outcomes during pregnancy is limited. There is some evidence linking omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy and its effect on infant outcomes. This session will explore the outcomes of infant behavior, cognition and adiposity. Finally, efforts to disseminate the research to inform clinical practitioners has been limited. Dietetic professionals can play a critical role in delivering this evidence-based lifestyle practices for the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy. Planned with The Academy Committee for Professional Development

Analyze the current evidence of Omega 3 fatty acids during pregnancy and its effect on infant outcomes including infant behavior, cognition and adiposity.

Cancer survivors now represent a significant portion of oncology care provided by dietetic professionals. Evidence to support medical nutrition therapy/ nutrition care planning in this population is mounting and suggests diet choices do influence prognosis and/or risk for co-morbidity. Yet, in some areas, such as weight management, the data are evolving and seem to support the need to include body composition assessment as a standard component of nutrition assessment to inform on best practices in this population. Finally, despite significant evidence, efforts to disseminate the research to inform on clinical practice have been limited. Dietetic professionals can play a critical role in filling this gap. Planned with The Academy Committee for Professional Development

Understand the current evidence regarding body weight and body composition and cancer survivorship

Describe the state of the evidence for dietary interventions to improve health outcomes after cancer therapy
