Date: December 5
Time: 11 a.m. - noon (Central time)
In this webinar, attendees will learn about evidence-based methods for the creation of nutrition programming in post-treatment survivorship. Specifically, the presenter will describe the use of co-design principles for the development of nutrition interventions that can be implemented in clinical, community, and research settings. Emphasis will be placed on selection of co-designers who can contribute to the creation and evaluation of such programming to improve the potential for interventions to reach their intended populations as well as encourage their adoption, implementation, and maintenance within an organization or group. Frameworks to guide the process for development and evaluation of nutrition programming will be covered, as well as the use of qualitative and mixed methods approaches to incorporate diverse perspectives. Examples of outcomes for assessment of intervention impact will also be presented. The webinar will end with a brief discussion on methods for the optimization of interventions to better understand which components of multi-component programs are leading to observed effects.

Emily Hill, PhD, RDN
Dr. Emily Hill is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Postdoctoral Fellow at The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. She completed a dual-degree MS/PhD in Medical Dietetics and Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at The Ohio State University and began her postdoctoral training upon graduation in 2021. Dr. Hill’s research interest centers on the need to more precisely define the relationship between dietary intakes and cardiometabolic health within the context of obesity and cancer. Her goal is to design, optimize, evaluate, and implement sustainable behavioral interventions to improve health and enhance longevity along the cancer control continuum. She has worked on several clinical trials aimed at improving overall diet quality, with a focus on examining changes in dietary intake patterns, biomarkers of dietary exposure, and integration of -omics (including proteomics, metabolomics, and the microbiome) to evaluate and predict response to intervention.
