The 5 Minute Nutrition Consult for the Non-RD
“Don’t eat anything white” is not enough. As the provider and clinician, you have to say something more, especially if you have just given your patient their diagnosis of pre-diabetes or maybe type 2 diabetes. Understanding your limited visit time with patients, you have to be concise and help people move to action without feeling like they can’t ever eat a potato or piece of bread again. Join us for tips for a quick assessment, helping patients identify their own strategies for change, finding resources, and agreeing to go to that important appointment for Medical Nutrition Counseling (MNT) and/or comprehensive education. You don’t have to be the expert, but you have to help people get started. You Can Do This!

Covid-19: Who are the first responders to the First Responders?
Covid has wreaked havoc on the nation, the economy, and our healthcare. Now that we’re emerging out of the other side, we look back at the wake it has left behind. It’s the first responders: all the providers that need healing now. We waded through the conspiracies, tackled the surf of differential diagnoses, languished in lack of PPE, and paddled through death and disease day in and day out with mask and face shields. Now the thing that can get us past this, the vaccines, are “plots to infect us all”. Feel like all you’re doing is just surviving, going through the motions? Perhaps it’s your staff that has lost morale. This sounds like burnout. And it is real, very real, and will be our next pandemic. Come join this interactive session and see if you or your staff have burnout and what you can do about it.
