Is religion taboo in nutrition care? As health professionals sometimes we think we need to know everything about every religion before we can include it.
The beauty of working with people is that we’re all people. You have feelings, experiences, beliefs…you have a story. While you’re the expert in nutrition, you’re not expected to be the expert in faith.
On the podcast let’s talk to dietitian Zach Cordell about religion in nutrition care and how it can be helpful to ask clients questions and then tailor your expertise to their needs to build trust and rapport.
Zach is a nutrition professor and host of The Latter-day Saint Nutritionist podcast. He focuses on addressing how our culture influences our behaviors by fusing food, faith, and science.
