Precision nutrition has the goal of making individualized, actionable dietary recommendations that help people decide what, when, why, and how to eat to optimize their health and quality of life. When considering if and how this concept should be applied in practice, RDNs require evidence that utilizing this strategy improves nutrition-related outcomes in patients and clients. This session will describe the current landscape of precision nutrition and help dietitians develop individualized dietary recommendations. The information will also help RDNs keep abreast of current nutrition and dietetics knowledge and trends.
