Spotlight on Nutrition

Since athletic trainers are on the front lines in the effort to prevent, recognize, and treat nutrition-related conditions, knowing when to refer an athlete to a specialist can be a key factor in an athlete’s success. On Wednesday, athletic trainers from all settings can benefit from attending the session titled, “A Case Study Approach to Illustrate Evidence-Based Treatment of Nutrition-Related Concerns in Athletes.”
The session, which supercedes age, gender, and sport, will be presented by Timothy Doane, MA, ATC, Lehigh University Head Athletic Trainer, and Jennifer Doane, MS, RD, LDN, CSSD, ATC, President and Co-Owner of Advantage Nutrition & Wellness and a Consultant for Lehigh athletics. Here’s a synopsis of the session from the presenters:

Our goal is to illustrate an optimum model for treating athletes and physically active individuals who present with symptoms that require nutrition intervention and the need for medical nutrition therapy. We will be utilizing three case studies to highlight the effective collaboration between athletic trainers and sports dietitians for the management of nutrition-related conditions.

We want those attending to better understand the scope of practice for the registered dietitian and certified specialist in sport dietetics and how athletes and physically active individuals can benefit from adding these professionals to their sports medicine team.

“A Case Study Approach to Illustrate Evidence-Based Treatment of Nutrition-Related Concerns in Athletes” is on Wednesday from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. It is being presented at the Annual Meeting by SCAN (Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition), a dietetic practice group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
