Nutrition Education for the Public (NEP), a dietetic practice group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), will join nonprofit Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) in presenting “Eating Heart Healthy: Exploring Issues of Low Seafood Consumption in America,” a live webinar designed to help nutrition educators and students inform consumers about the health benefits of eating a seafood-rich diet.

Structured as a continuing-education course, the April 13 webinar will review current research and provide recommendations and educational resources to help increase seafood consumption based on nutritional and health benefits. Participants will learn how to apply current research and recommendations related to seafood consumption, address common concerns about the sourcing of wild-caught and farmed fish, encourage simple and quick preparation methods, and locate resources for use in consumer counseling.
