Donate Education Materials: A new feature of our website is a public section that contains accurate nutrition information. If we want the public to regard RDs and DTRs as the only resource they should trust for evidenced-based nutrition information we need it to be easily accessible. If you have designed your OWN education materials please email them to Jacqueline Slomin, LIDA website coordinator at Jacqueline.Slomin@my.liu.edu. Feel free to include your name and headshot on the handout. We want you to get credit for your hard work!
Get creative! If you have an idea of your own, we would be happy to help you get started and make your project a success. Last year, Amy Shapiro, RD, LIDA member, approached the LIDA about a Nutrition Public Service announcement campaign. Listen to the local radio stations in the next couple of months to hear the nutritional tips provided for Long Islanders by the LIDA. Email LIDA.firstname.lastname@example.org to get started on your project today.
