Breakfast & Briefing

Overview

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.

Note: Continuing education credits available: CEU (Dietitians), FACS PDU (Family & Consumer Science), USBE (Teachers), SNA CEU (Schools/Nutrition), CHES (Public Health)

                Mirroring, Steel-manning, and Speaking the Truth:                      Developing Skills for Effective Communication

Vance Crowe, Director of Millennial Engagement at Monsanto, talked about what he has learned working for an agriculture company that faces strong criticism by the public.  Vance talked about the research of why people over-estimate what they know about a subject (like nutrition) and discussed how to handle a person that underappreciates the depth of the field of dietetics.  Vance also discussed how to find communities that are interested in learning about what you know and connecting with them authentically.

2016 Overview

 

Emerging Trends in Dietary Protein: Protein is an essential nutrient supporting the structural integrity of our musculoskeletal system, nutrient metabolism, and immune function. A significant and growing body of research continues to support the benefits of higher protein diets in the areas of sports nutrition, weight management and healthy aging. Additionally, research is beginning to examine questions related to protein quality and timing (i.e. skewed vs. balanced protein intake) to help further refine the practical recommendations that can be made in an effort to optimize intake. This presentation reviews the latest science related to protein quantity, quality and timing and helps to translate that science into practical recommendations and meal plans for practitioners to use with their clients. After the session, participants will…

• Highlight the importance of muscle mass in supporting health and mobility

• Provide an overview of the basis for current protein requirements, including considerations for essential amino acids and the flexibility provided by current DRIs for dietary protein prescriptions.

• Review the latest science examining the role of protein quantity, quality and timing/meal distribution on muscle metabolism

• Translate the science into practical recommendations for practitioners to utilize with their clients

2015 Overview

 

Dietary Fat: Over the past three decades as Americans have heeded government recommendations to consume less fat, obesity rates have gone up dramatically. New research calls into question these low fat recommendations. Thunder Jalili – Associate Professor in the University of Utah’s Division of Nutrition and Integrative Physiology takes us through the history of the fat recommendations and the science behind them. He offers contemporary research that helps put into context where we are now. This sessions’ learning objectives:

  1. Evaluate the “diet – heart hypothesis” and understand its origins
  2. Analyze the data on dietary fat and CVD from epidemiology and meta-analyses.
  3. Understand the rationale that may be used to revise dietary recommendations going forward.

2014 Overview

 

The Dairy Council of Utah would like to thank all of you who participated in our 2014 Breakfast & Briefing event – Sustainable Nutrition: How eating behaviors, GMO’s and farming practices impact sustainability. Our panel consisted of a dairy farmer/dairy nutritionist, dairy research expert, and a molecular geneticist who were able to address the complexities of sustainability,  sustainable on-farm practices, the latest in dairy research, and the current standing on GMO’s in the scientific community. Because of the popularity of last year, we kept the same panel format, and for this topic, it seemed to work quite well. During our discussion, we were able to address many of the questions that you submitted prior to the event as well as those that were raised during the event.

2013 Overview

 

The Dairy Council of Utah would like to thank all of you who participated in our 2013 Breakfast & Briefing event – From Farm to Table: A panel discussion on farm practices, dairy research, and nutrition solutions. Our panel consisted of a dairy farmer, dairy research expert, and a dietitian with the Culinary Institute of America who were able to address on-farm practices, the latest in dairy research, and the value of dairy as part of a nutritious meal solution. The panel format was new for us, and for this topic, it seemed to work quite well. During our discussion, we were able to address many of the questions that you submitted prior to the event as well as those that were raised during the event. Below is a summary of the Q&A with resources for additional information. If you have additional comments, please email us. Also, if you didn’t have a chance to complete a paper evaluation of the morning, please submit your thoughts and suggestions online.
