Due to the societal shift toward health promotion and disease prevention, the Academy's vision for the Second Century has placed a greater priority on public health as it embarks on the next 100 years.). Nutrition problems affecting the population require multi-level, cross-sectoral interventions that address various underlying determinants of the problem and are directed to population level outcomes. Characterizing these interventions requires targeted terminology for public health. This session introduces the new terminology for describing population-based nutrition interventions, and demonstrates the connection to the social ecological model. Examples illustrating application of the terminology to activities Registered Dietitian Nutritionists perform when working at the population level will be provided, and participants will be asked to engage in case studies utilizing the new terminology.
