Testimonials from other educators...

Communicating Nutrition: The Authoritative Guide comprehensively and succinctly lays out the essential skills needed by dietitians to successfully communicate with their audiences. The chapters provide vivid real-life examples and are easy, engaging, and entertaining to read.  What I love most is that the book is written by dietitians for dietitians.  I thoroughly enjoyed teaching with the pilot and would recommend it as a must read.  Regardless of whether you're a dietetics student or a seasoned dietitian, it will serve as a useful learning resource and/or valuable refresher as you seek to become a more effective nutrition communicator.”

Communicating Nutrition: The Authoritative Guide is a wealth of information for the student, intern, entry level professional and seasoned professional. I appreciate this text because it has everything one needs to learn tried-and-true nutrition communication techniques to make communication memorable. Educators will find this versatile text useful in any number of nutrition courses. It is my go-to guide to better communication!"

“Reading Communicating Nutrition: The Authoritative Guide is a delight, and thank you for creating the supplemental Instructor Resource Kit! Your ideas guided our sequencing of assignments, which were easy to modify, and the grading rubrics were extremely helpful. The interns completed the assignment of making a 5-minute community nutrition video project via their phones, and of course, the biggest learner of this activity was me! We plan to formally adopt the text and incorporate it in our graduate nutrition communication course.”
