Have you ever wished RDNs – as a professional entity – knew more about a given area of practice, or felt there was a lack of research in a specific area? Session presenters from the Academy's Research Priorities and Strategies Development Task Force will explain why these priorities should matter to ALL Academy members. They will provide attendees a sneak peek at the revised priorities and use interactive audience-engagement technologies to get feedback from attendees on the priority-setting process and on the drafted priorities in real time. Attendees will also be given an example of how research priorities are established at the federal agency level by discussing the Strategic Plan for NIH Nutrition Research, Process, and Prioritization. The session will end with a discussion of actionable strategies that any attendee can use to help generate knowledge for the profession through their work and studies and advance their own career in the process.
