NEWS FROM THE ACADEMY:

The Academy is pleased to be the new publisher for the upcoming 9th edition of Nutrition and Diagnosis-Related Care by Sylvia Escott-Stump. This highly successful book has been widely used as a textbook in dietetics programs and it continues to serve as an authoritative reference on medical nutrition therapy for practitioners.

Peer review is an important part of the development process of all of our books, and we are currently selecting practitioners to review the revised manuscript for this book. If you and your clinical staff would be interested in reviewing sections of the book, please respond to Betsy Hornick at bhornick@eatright.org or 312-899-1776, and indicate the sections of interest for review. More information, instructions, and timelines will then be provided. All reviewers will be acknowledged in the book, and a complimentary copy of the book will be provided as a reference for your department.

Population-Based Nutrition Intervention Terminology
Dietitians/nutritionists in many settings work on projects and initiatives to impact nutrition of a population. New terminology specific to nutrition intervention has been added to the eNCPT and is now available to describe that work. This recent addition to the eNCPT is in line with the Academy’s strategic plan to expand public health and community initiatives.
