Free CEU Opportunity from the Beef Council.

Meat and seafood cooked at high temperature generates varying levels of heterocyclic amines (HCA) and any food cooked over a flame contains polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). Exposure to HCA and PAH from cooked meat has been hypothesized to contribute to increased cancer risk.

During this webinar, speakers Robert Turesky, PhD, BSc (University of Minnesota), Jane Pouzou, PhD (EpiX Analytics) and Steven Clinton, MD, PhD (The Ohio State University) will discuss the evidence base behind the most recent World Cancer Research Fund/American Institute for Cancer Research (WCRF/AICR) Expert Panel report recommendations regarding meat intake; challenges and progress in the identification of specific individual HCA biomarkers and their isolation from human tissue; and challenges associated with estimating dietary HCA and PAH exposure using common dietary assessment techniques and publicly available HCA/PAH exposure estimation tools.

The American Society for Nutrition (ASN) designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1.0 CPEUs. Dietitians and dietetic technicians, registered should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. ASN (Provider #NS010) is accredited and approved by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) as a provider of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) programs for Registered Dietitians.

Encore Presentation of Webinar Tomorrow- CEUs!

Thu, Oct 10, 2019 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT

 Join Dr. John Bagnulo for a deep dive into a human metabolism centered food webinar that is sure to strengthen your interest in whole foods. This discussion highlights many interactive molecules inherent to whole plant foods simply missing from foods comprised of isolated ingredients. Each has countless interactions with our endocrine, neurological, cardiovascular, and hepato-biliary systems, in addition to the omni-influential microbiome and fundamental cellular processes.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this lecture participants will be able to
1. Identify the various components in whole foods that have microbial, biochemical, or epigenomic influence beyond the macronutrient content.
2. Describe the synergy found between specific compounds contained in whole foods and lost with refined and/or heavily processed foods.
3. Provide an example of where complex interactions between phytonutrients and vitamins provide a physiological advantage over the consumption of each constituent consumed in isolation.
4. Outline the major areas of research that are currently illustrating the benefits of whole food consumption over refined foods.

Take Action: Advocacy and the SNAP Proposed Rule

KAND members

Recently the Academy has called on RDNs as experts and advocates on the topic of life cycle nutrition to speak up and reach out to their elected congressional representatives on the SNAP proposed rule that would reduce access to SNAP and school meals for many families in your community. Under the proposed rule 1-5% of KY SNAP families would lose access to much needed support and access to nutritious food. We still need your help! Please join your fellow KAND members and advocate for food access in our state.  We are asking you to do two things:

  1. Tailor the Op-Ed template or use our provided presidents statement-Presidents State SNAP and submit to your local media contacts in coordination with your affiliate’s communications liaison
  2. Tailor the Email template included in this communication and send to your district/state office, cc’ing the Ag LA and LD.Mitch McConnell (R-KY)

For specific instructions, please view the recording of this afternoon’s call here.


Our goal is to have the op-ed and email sent as soon as possible. Please let me know when you have sent both communications and if you have any questions, please contact me at ecampbell@eatright.org.


Thank you for your efforts to protect 3 million people from losing their SNAP benefits and 500,000 children from losing access to free school meals.
