      When one thinks of protein, what generally comes to mind is that it plays a role in the growth and repair of cells.  Recent research suggests it does so much more including playing a significant role in other metabolic functions that impact overall health throughout the life cycle.  Considerable data have emerged related to protein and age related muscle loss, protein synthesis and overall health. This presentation will provide the scientific evidence to support practitioners recommendations related to quality, quantity and timing of protein for the older adult.        Planned with The Academy Committee for Lifelong Learning.

The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in association with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health recently launched “The "Teaching Kitchen Collaborative” (TKC), a learning network of thought leaders from, initially, 26 organizations using teaching kitchen facilities as catalysts of enhanced personal and public health across medical, corporate, school, and community settings.  The Collaborative is an outgrowth of the long-running CIA-Harvard Chan School Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives® conference series for medical professionals that integrates state of the science around nutrition, exercise and movement, mindfulness, and health coaching with a framework of culinary strategies.  The TKC will develop best practices for reproducibility and scalability of emerging models of teaching kitchens and related educational programs, as well as explore the creation of a research network to support the evaluation of the clinical, behavioral, and financial impact of selected best practices across various populations and settings. This session will also explore the current and potential roles of RDN’s in advancing the teaching kitchen movement. Planned with The Academy Committee for Lifelong Learning

Individuals with type 2 diabetes are characterized by prolonged periods of hyperglycemia due to a decreased responsiveness of skeletal muscle to the actions of insulin (insulin resistance). A primary goal for the treatment of type 2 diabetes should be to enhance skeletal muscle oxidative capacity to improve metabolic flexibility (i.e., the ability to transition between carbohydrate- and fat-based fuels), and improve post-prandial glycemic control This presentation will review the mechanisms of action as well as practical applications by which novel dietary and exercise interventions can improve whole-body glucose homeostasis by modulating skeletal muscle metabolic flexibility.  Planned with the Academy's Committee for Lifelong Learning

Traditional nutritional approaches to sports training have promoted high carbohydrate (CHO) availability before, during and after workouts to ensure adequate muscle substrate to meet the demands of daily training. However, training in conditions of reduced CHO availability can promote training-induced adaptations of human skeletal muscle and improve exercise capacity (so-called 'train-low, compete-high'). This talk will provide a contemporary perspective of our understanding of the cellular events that take place in skeletal muscle in response to both endurance and resistance exercise commenced after acute and/or chronic alterations in nutrient availability, and their impact on performance outcomes.

It’s not enough to tell people what they should be eating. Even explaining the benefits of a healthy diet isn't enough. If we want to close the persistent gaps between the recommendations outlined in the Dietary Guidelines and typical eating patterns, we need to break down the cultural, logistical, and culinary barriers that stand between good intentions and better eating habits. You'll leave this session armed with concrete strategies, tips, tools (and recipes!) that will help your clients and patients build kitchen confidence and competence, expand cultural and culinary horizons, and increase their intake and enjoyment of healthful foods.

The hospitalization of a child after birth or during early childhood can create or exacerbate stress related disorders in parents that impair their emotional or psychological functioning, depth of attachment, and the developmental outcomes of their infant. These disorders interrupt the bonding experience surrounding feeding and result in feelings of loss for the parent over the imagined infant, as well as feelings of depression and anxiety. As part of the health care team the RDN has an obligation to engage in inter-professional collaboration with the goal of preventing feeding problems that impact nutritional status, growth and development. This informative session will highlight the importance of interdisciplinary practice in support of parent/child mental health relative to nutrition, feeding and growth in early childhood and provide strategies for clinical practice.

The gastrointestinal tract contains trillions of microbes and more nerve connections than any other organ in the body. Do gut microbes use the GI tract as a highway to send signals to the brain and vice-a-versa? How can we as nutrition practioners use diet to influence this signaling? Mounting preclinical evidence suggests that the gastrointestinal microbiota can modulate brain development, function and behavior via the brain-gut-microbiota axis. Importantly, clinical trials demonstrate that diet is a key factor in the composition of the human gastrointestinal microbiota. After this session, the dietetic professional will be able to diagram the signaling pathways between the gut and the brain, and implement dietary regimens that impact the microbes in the gastrointestinal tract thereby influencing communication along the gut-microbiota-brain axis.

There have been significant findings over the past decade indicating the importance of nutrition in the treatment of kidney stones, urinary incontinence (UI), and interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS). Recognizing that food, nutrition, and diet are an integral part of therapy for these conditions, American Urological Association clinical guidelines recommend dietary modifications as a therapeutic option. Furthermore, research highlights the role of integrative approaches in the provision of optimal nutrition therapies for these individuals. Though all of this emphasizes the vital need of the RDN in the practice setting, nurses, physical therapists, and other health care providers are offering nutrition guidance to these patients. Opportunities exist to expand the scope of practice for RDNs further into the field of urology.

Childhood obesity treatment services have a Grade B recommendation from the US Preventive Services Task Force, and should therefore be covered under the Affordable Care Act. However, there is limited patient access to such services. The American Academy of Pediatrics, in collaboration with The Obesity Society, and funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, convened a multi-sector stakeholder conference in the summer of 2015. Through this conference, “Evidence-based childhood obesity treatment: Improving access and systems of care”, the stakeholders assessed priorities in the field of childhood obesity treatment, formed a collaborative set of recommendations, and identified priorities to address with payers, including ACOs; this session will review those findings as well as future directions addressing the barriers and facilitators for implementing the recommendations from this conference.

Iowa State University and University of Ghana dietetic interns partner to perform the Nutrition Care Process in the communities of rural Ghana where substantial nutritional need and limited resources are found. In Ghana, the disease burden is shifting rapidly from communicable and infectious diseases to non-communicable chronic diseases. This double burden is an opportunity to recognize the role of the dietitian in facilitating dietary behavior and lifestyle changes. Yet the number of dietitians in Ghana totals less than 50 for 25 million Ghanaians. Dietitians in Ghana face challenges such as inadequate legislation, variations in education standards, hiring barriers and lack of professional autonomy. Ultimately, dietetic interns practice new roles in the global community by highlighting areas of similarity in low-resource communities in both the U.S. and Ghana.

This leadership session effectively combines the clinical nutrition component and the management aspect of dietetics. The presenters will discuss their strategies for implementing a practical comprehensive malnutrition program within their acute-care hospital settings. As we know, malnutrition is an under-documented diagnosis that contributes to increased length of stay and readmissions, as well as increased cost of health service. Using evidence-based practice applications for malnutrition screening and nutrition focused physical exams, a successful platform will assist with improved quality of care, better patient outcomes, and increased reimbursement. A fundamental element to implementing a plan is efficient project management. Identifying key stakeholders is an essential part of the process and creating a multidisciplinary team that will work in concert to promote patient quality outcomes is critical.

Public perception is that nutrition advice changes daily every day, leaving many consumers wondering why experts disagree with one another. One way to answer that question was to gather some of the world’s top nutrition science experts and nutrition communicators in one room, let them have their say, then ask them to reach consensus – to find common ground – on what we really know about eating well. This presentation will share the results of Oldways’ Finding Common Ground conference, the unified, clear message of healthy eating, and help RDNs communicate the tenants of good nutrition to the media, clients and patients.

Obesity, diabetes and cancer are distinct conditions and interrelated co-morbidities. The concern that sugar “causes diabetes” or “feeds cancer” will be heard by every dietitian working with these populations. Thus practitioners seek evidence-based approaches to help clients manage these conditions. Relationship of type and amount of dietary carbohydrate intake to obesity, diabetes and cancer are complex. Treatment includes addressing carbohydrates’ role in weight status, glucose control and hyperinsulinemia. The latter increases the release of insulin-like growth factors which are thought to be tumor promoters. Low-carbohydrate and plant-based diets have been studied for the management of obesity and diabetes, and are now being evaluated for their effects on risk for and control of cancer. This session will compare and contrast effects of low-carbohydrate and plant-based diets on weight, glucose control and hyperinsulinemia, and how these factors may be relevant for cancer control.

Dr. Steven Bratman coined the word "Orthorexia" in the 1990s to describe “an unhealthy obsession with eating healthy food” that he observed among his patient population. Since that time, orthorexia - the word and the disorder - have gone from obscurity to ridicule to media darling. Although dietetics and other professionals use the term orthorexia, it is still an “unofficial” eating disorder without agreed upon criteria. For the first time at FNCE, Dr. Bratman himself will describe how he conceived of orthorexia, and will present the newly published orthorexia criteria. Notable Eating Disorder Dietitian Jessica Setnick, MS, RD, CEDRD, will join Dr. Bratman to share what dietetics professionals need to know and do when encountering orthorexia in our patients.

Due to the progressive nature of type 2 diabetes, nutrition and physical activity interventions alone are generally not effective in maintaining glycemic control long-term. For many, glucose lowering medications will be needed. Today, health care providers have a wide array of glucose-lowering medications from which to choose based on the individual’s physiological defects. The first part of the session will provide an overview on the target organs for diabetes drugs, mechanisms of action and affect on weight. In addition, new categories and types of glucose-lowering medications such as GLP-1 agonists, SGLT-2 inhibitors, and new formulations of insulin will be described. The second part of the session will focus on what the RDN needs to know regarding the expanding role of RDN in medication management.

Updated evidence-based nutrition practice guidelines for Pediatric Weight Management will soon be available in the EAL. Recommendations developed within the framework of the Nutrition Care Process include a major emphasis on nutrition assessment and nutrition intervention. Through an innovative approach, analysis of the literature allows for application of research to real world complex situations. Results provide evidence-based recommendations for effective care for pediatric overweight and obesity in a multicomponent, multidisciplinary context. Scientific evidence supports the importance of the registered dietitian nutritionist as a member of the interprofessional team caring for children with overweight or obesity. By providing medical nutrition therapy as part of multicomponent pediatric weight management, the RDN can support interventions including nutrition, physical activity and behavioral counseling – all integral to the nutrition care process for these children and families.
