An annual tradition for health professionals, the dairy council’s breakfast and briefing is an opportunity to mingle with colleagues and hear the latest in nutrition research. Past topics have included dietary fat, dairy sustainability, understanding how our food environment impacts eating behavior, and meal solutions for families. Held each fall at the Grand America Hotel, in Salt Lake City, this event is open to health and school professionals as well as students for a nominal fee. Hope to see you there!
Developing Skills for Effective Communication
Vance Crowe, Director of Millennial Engagement at Monsanto, will talk about what he has learned working for an agriculture company that faces strong criticism by the public. Vance will talk about the research of why people over-estimate what they know about a subject (like nutrition) and discuss how to handle a person that underappreciates the depth of the field of dietetics. Vance will also discuss how to find communities that are interested in learning about what you know and connecting with them authentically.
Dairy West works with select partners on events and community engagement opportunities when our goals align and we can further our mission on behalf of Idaho and Utah’s dairy farm families.
