Dr. Marilyn Townsend, University of California, Davis shared “Helping Federal Programs Combat Childhood Obesity with New Valid Evaluation Tools & Education Materials.” This seminar was approved by the Commission on Dietetic Registration for one Continuing Professional Education Unit (CEU).*
This seminar is part of the Institute of Food Safety and Nutrition (IFSN) Seminar Series. These monthly seminars aim to disseminate new knowledge; engage with partners and stakeholders; and inspire the next generation of food safety and nutrition experts. For full information on the series, visit the seminar webpage.
Evidence-based strategies are central to the success of Federal Programs; however, valid tools to evaluate different strategies in low-literate and low-income populations are limited. After this seminar attendees will be able to discuss the purpose and audience of the evaluation tools presented; describe two ways the evaluation tools were tailored for low-literate, low-income audiences; identify three methods used to validate the evaluation tools; describe how the evaluation tools can be tailored to different cultural groups; and list two intervention strategies developed that will work with federal program participants.
*Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) or Nutrition and Dietetics Technicians, Registered (NDTRs) who view this recorded seminar and wish to receive the CEU certificate please e-mail Mallory M. Koenings.
