VRG’s Outreach Booth at Sports Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition Conference

Posted on June 19, 2012 by Nina Casalena, The VRG Blog Editor

The Vegetarian Resource Group recently had an outreach booth at the annual meeting of the Sports Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition (SCAN) dietetic practice of the American Dietetic Association/Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Thank you for volunteering to Amanda Gilley, Dorothy Kenney, Amanda Matte, and Jenny Saccenti, as well as Debra Wasserman and Charles Stahler. We had a chance to share vegan information with sports dietitians who see patients, as well as an opportunity for several important conversations about vegetarian needs with dietitians working for major companies that are developing vegetarian and vegan products.

    As immediate past Chair of SCAN, I want to thank VRG for attending the SCAN Symposium. Sports, wellness and cardiovascular dietitians frequently work with athletes and clients that are or have recently decided to be vegetarian (or vegan) and it is important for them to know about VRG. Charles and Debra thanks for all that you and VRG have done to educate health professionals and the public about vegetarian diets. VRG can be counted on their science-based, high-quality vegetarian information. Again it was great to have you at SCAN. We hope you can attend another Symposium in the near future.

    Thank you,
    Enette Larson-Meyer, PhD, RD, CSSD
