Los Angeles Conference April 6, 2019

“Dialectics in Dietetics: Multiple Truths in Nutrition Science” Conference April 6, 2019

History of the Conference

At the Los Angeles District of the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual transition meeting in the summer of 2016, we had a big idea. What if we could throw our own conference?

In 2017 we actually did it and it was epic! Our first conference was called “Public Health and Private Profits: A Dialogue about Critical Topics Shaping the Future of the Dietetic Profession”

Our 2018 conference was called “One Size Does Not Fit All: Promoting Diverse Perspectives in Dietetics” and was also SOLD OUT.

Our April, 6 2019 conference should be the best one yet! “Dialectics in Dietetics: Multiple Truths in Nutrition Science.” We are so thrilled to have such a star-studded line-up this year! The conference is held at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and is not to be missed!

Does Alcohol Affect HbA1c? Video

How does alcohol affect HbA1c?

David Wiss MS RDN describes the relationship between alcohol and glycohemoglobin (HbA1c) from a biospsychosocial perspective. Alcohol lowers HbA1c levels significantly and many researchers have concluded that alcohol is protective against T2DM. Sounds strange doesn’t it? What are the mechanisms? Is it the alcohol itself or is it people who drink alcohol? Are group differences in this relationship due to social or biological factors? Until more research is done, we have more questions than answers. Find out what we do know here and next time someone asks “does alcohol affect HbA1c?” you will be ready to chime in!

Nutrition in Recovery is a group practice of Registered Dietitian Nutritionists and other health professionals who specialize in the treatment of addictions, eating disorders, body image, mental health, as well as general wellness.

We send out a monthly Newsletter summarizing the latest research linking nutrition and mental health. Each newsletter will include a short video with some helpful hints and actions you can implement to improve mental, spiritual, and physical wellbeing for yourself and for your clients. You will be among the first to hear the findings and insights from cutting-edge data, and we are providing references so you can do your own research if interested.

Within the next year you can look forward to the following topics being covered:

Bariatric Surgery

Child Nutrition

Circadian Rhythms

Men and Eating Disorders
