JUNK Debunk: When Food & Facts Collide

November 14, 2019 at 9 am PT ( 10 am MT, 11 am CT, 12 pm ET)

Speaker: Mary Lee Chin, MS, RD

Scientific studies, traditionally sheltered in insulated journals, are now quickly publicized in press releases, posted on Twitter and Face Book, and disseminated on YouTube, TED talks and TV. We are inundated with food and nutrition headlines, recommendations, claims and counter claims asserting the evidence to be based on the latest scientific research. It is essential that dietitians be able to distinguish between research studies that are relatively trustworthy, and those that are based on dicey research resulting in false narratives and junk science.

Junk Debunk provides an understanding of how to differentiate between credible and junk science, how and why people make science beliefs based on values and adhere to those beliefs even when challenged by contradictory evidence. The webinar discusses communications approaches and skills to address food and nutrition misinformation, based first on empathy and values, and then on facts. Dietitians will be able to help patients, clients and the public sift through science research results and claims to determine what is genuine, credible and beneficial.
