A number of industry experts convened for a nutrition scope of practice panel discussion at the 2012 IDEA World Fitness Convention™. The nearly 2-hour conversation was lively and forthright.

Try something new this week and see what happens.

As a dietitian, I’m constantly cognizant about who exactly is my target audience—and that “target” keeps moving. It’s clear that traditional registered dietitian services of the past—such as meal planning, cooking demos, and so on, will always need tweaking to remain relevant to current culture. Those [who are] successful in the industry are the ones who [are] able to adapt and morph their offerings for future generations.
