Social media is a viable marketing strategy for dietitians to build an online audience, engage with digital communities, support public health, promote services & demonstrate expertise. However, we’re bound to ethical & professional standards & practice in relative environments, including Instagram & the like. Thus, online activities should be carefully considered and through a lens of context & care. Attend this session to ensure content creation & community engagement align with public protection & strengthen the RDN/NDTR reputation by applying the Academy’s Code of Ethics & Standards of Professionalism. Common dilemmas in nutrition communications will be critically evaluated.

*This session meets the 1.0 Ethics credit requirement set forth by the CDR.
