Retail RD Symposium Deadline Nears

Retail RD Symposium Deadline Nears

May 10, 2017

Through their mutual commitment to empowering retail dietitians as they work to improve the health of consumers and enhance the business of grocery retail, Progressive Grocer and the Retail Dietitians Business Alliance (RDBA) are collaborating on the extended format for the fifth annual Progressive Grocer Retail Dietitian Symposium, which takes place June 3-5 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in Anaheim, CA.

Working with a board of registered dietitian advisors, Progressive Grocer created the agenda for the Retail Dietitian Symposium to provide two-and-a-half days of valuable content and continuing education credits. The session topics include top trends in grocery retail and their impact on the role of retail dietitians: “Answering the Call: What’s for Dinner,” “Recognizing Gaps and Helping Parents Establish Healthy Feeding Habits,” “Unlocking Rich Product Data to Satisfy Customers,” plus findings from a Progressive Grocer consumer health and wellness survey, special strategy sessions and much more. 

New for 2017, the RDBA will be providing the Retail Dietitian Symposium with exclusive content for day one, including sessions on “Expanding Your Reach through Internal and External Partnerships,” “Dietitian and Business Person are Not Mutually Exclusive Terms,” and “Creating Your Professional Brand.” 

To see the full agenda here. Progressive Grocer works with the Commission on Dietetic Registration and is a CPE Accredited Provider.

The Retail Dietitian Symposium always provides inspiration to dietitians, interaction with solution providers and invaluable peer networking. This year, the event also includes access to the IDDBA trade show June 5, with a special retail dietitian trade show floor tour.
