The presentation will give RDs an understanding of why it is essential to eat wholesome foods to get healthy skin, mainly for clients with eczema, acne, psoriasis, and rosacea. It will also show how they can create their skincare regimen with natural healthy ingredients. I do a demo on how to use the food that you have in your refrigerator for a quick facial and explain why the foods that they are eating can help with the treatment of their skin. I can also explain about how RDs can work with dermatologists particularly to help with the treatment process of clients with skin disorders.
Cultural Humility in Nutrition and Dietetics – Denine Rogers
Food has a comforting impact that can be expressed through a person’s culture, emotions, experiences, and background. But when food has a very significant meaning to a patient, dietitians may not understand the cultural importance. This is where cultural humility needs to take place.
Dietitians can start an engaging cultural humility discussion with their patients by questioning and identifying their own cultural and family values and beliefs. RDs can also begin analyzing their personal biases and assumptions about their patients with different values than themselves. During this presentation, we will discuss how to practice cultural humility, demonstrate a willingness to learn from patients while accepting inherent limitations, and increase self-awareness of biases and misperceptions.
