Find Rob Masterson, RD, CNSC on Twitter @RobMastersonRD

As you are well aware, lactose intolerance, described as the gastrointestinal symptoms that may be experienced following intake of lactose (milk sugar) in amounts greater than the body’s ability to digest and absorb lactose, affects many in the U.S. However, what you may not know is that health professionals and patients perceive and communicate on lactose intolerance differently and that misconceptions related to lactose intolerance can lead to the unnecessary elimination of dairy foods from the diet.

Always at the forefront of providing the most sound nutrition resources for consumer and healthcare communities, [NL] Nutrition Lately would like to highlight an upcoming opportunity for dietitians and doctors to earn credit and learn about best practices when communicating about lactose intolerance.

Join the National Dairy Council for a free health, nutrition and medical professional webinar on Wednesday, August 7 from 12 – 1 p.m. CT. Robin Plotkin, RD, LD, and Jennifer Goodrich, senior analyst at The Hartman Group, will discuss lactose intolerance perceptions and ways to bridge the communications gap between patients and health professionals. As research suggests, health professionals and patients perceive and communicate on lactose intolerance differently, and Robin and Jennifer will highlight effective management techniques in order to help maintain good nutrition.
