Trainee Symposium - From Nutrition Scientist to Nutrition Communicator

Nutrition scientists who conduct the research are the best qualified to communicate nutrition findings accurately and within context. They can positively affect public’s eating habits, influence health and nutrition policy, and receive heightened attention to their research, which can lead to future funding. In an interactive session, Dr. Kyly Whitfield will discuss some of the top strategies for better communicating your research.
