Recorded Webinar: Take 1: Using Live Cooking Demonstrations to Scale Your Nutrition Practice: Creating Virtual Experiences
This webinar was presented on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 from 2-3 p.m. EDT.
Live cooking demonstrations can be intimidating since you only have one chance to get it “right.” Using both free and paid tools, dietitians can engage and build their communities by linking valuable evidence-based nutrition content with well-planned cooking demos. The powerful combination of providing nutrition information and demonstrating actionable culinary behaviors is essential for any successful RD.
Applying this type of education can affect behavior change and support clients in not just getting to the finish line but crossing over it in full-fledged glory! They will be thanking you from the podium. Jeanne Petrucci, MS, RDN, will explore the logistics of facilitating live cooking demonstrations on multiple platforms – including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Zoom, and more – and teach you how to leverage them to scale your nutrition practice.
After completing this activity, nutrition professionals will be better able to:
- Plan for and deliver a live cooking demonstration using both free and paid tools.
- Apply evidence-based nutrition information as the foundation for live cooking demonstrations.
- Leverage live cooking demonstrations to increase community engagement and scale practice reach.
- Create nutrition education materials for live cooking demonstrations that link nutrition theory to actionable behaviors.
- Implement the logistics of creating and facilitating live culinary nutrition education events and interventions.
Jeanne Petrucci, MS, RDN, enthusiastically brings more than 20 years of experience as a private cooking instructor to her second career as a dietitian. Incorporating food experience into the nutrition care process is the foundation for her professional contributions, which include the creation of a transformational meal planning program for dietitians and a growing evidence-based nutrition education library.
Jeanne recently completed a research pilot study with American Institute for Cancer Research called “Coping with Cancer in the Kitchen,” which explored the impact of a culinary nutrition program on those touched by cancer. Her greatest joy continues to be collaborating with fellow dietitians, experts, and organizations in the development of programs that further her mission of making science delicious.
