SNEB Journal Club 6: Parental Nutrition Knowledge Rather Than Nutrition Label Use Is Associated With Adiposity in Children
Join us for a webinar on Oct 31, 2016 at 12:00 PM EDT.
Speaker: Lisa Kakinami, PhD, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Concordia University
Parents with greater nutrition label use had more favorable lipids, but children's lipids were unaffected. Children of parents with greater nutrition knowledge had lower adiposity. Further research on the correlates of label use and health is needed.
-Identify critical gaps in our understanding of how nutrition label use may be associated with children's health
-Explain the methods and results of the analysis investigating the associations between parent's nutrition label use and nutrition knowledge on their cardiometabolic health, and the cardiometabolic health of their children
-Identify the strengths and weaknesses of the study's methodology and their implications on study results
Dr. Lisa Kakinami received her PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Rochester. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics in collaboration with the PERFORM Centre, at Concordia University, in Montreal, Quebec. Her research is aimed at improving our understanding of the determinants of childhood obesity (focusing on poverty, social-familial factors and behaviours) and empirically testing the methodological tools used in identifying obesity.
Attendees will earn 1 CPE from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
Cost: SNEB Members attend webinars free as a benefit of membership. Non-member cost is $25 and you will receive a link to process payment following registration.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
