Continuing Education Opportunities

NCAND strives to post every continuing education opportunity that we hear about. 


The First Annual Nutrition Diversity Conference: Diversifying the Field through Patient Centered Care and Profession Centric Changes is sponsored by Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Post-baccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans (POHA-Denver) grant within the Department of Nutrition will be held virtually on September 10th, 2021.


The POHA-Denver Nutrition Diversity Conference provides a day filled with presentations, a cooking demonstration, and a fireside chat where you can personally ask Registered Dietitian Nutritionists questions related to diversity, equity and inclusion in the field of nutrition and dietetics.

Educational sessions will be split up into two tracks: Track A and Track B. Presentations in Track A focus on topics related to culturally aware patient-centered care. Presentations in Track B focus on diversity, inclusion, and equity issues faced in nutrition and dietetics curriculum and as a profession. Track B also includes an update from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee. Attend a full day of sessions to earn up to 11.5 CEUs.

Pre-Conference Event! MSU Denver's trained clinical faculty, Dr. Jennifer Bolton, PhD, RDN and Anne Hovinen, MS, RDN will be providing a virtual Nutrition Focused Physical Exam (NFPE) training on September 9th, 2021.
