Quick Bites – Nutrition Confusion & Social Media @ Zoom
Oct 10 @ 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm

Misinformation on social media has always been a problem. Whether it’s science, politics, popular culture, or any other topic, you can be sure there will be different opinions and heated conversations. Some of the most misrepresented subjects are nutrition, diet, and body image, as they are all subjects related to showing off a certain lifestyle or body type. Learn how to not be misled by social media influencers.

Quick Bites is a brief, virtual lunch and learn series on Zoom with our RDN, Jody Margolis, who will cover various nutrition hot topics. You’ll have the opportunity to ask the expert and expand your nutritional knowledge. Keep an eye on our social media and calendars to see when the next Quick Bites session will be.
