The demand for efficient, digital, and data-driven experiences is causing the widespread adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI)- such that dietitians, like many other professions, are forced to reconsider our role in the future of work. Although dietitians may not be replaced by intelligent machines (in the near future), the increasing demand to perform AI and mobile-supported nutritional interventions means that students and professionals should minimally be aware of the technology’s presence. Dietitians can grow alongside AI if they are ready to take the steps to prepare, adapt and future-proof their careers. AI has already begun to revolutionize research and practice in dietetics, advance personalized nutrition, and improve the integrity of nutritional science.
After this session, participants will be able to:
- Develop agency to address microaggressions, bias and racism in the dietetics profession;
- Design anti-racism dietetic approaches to increase diversity, equity and inclusion from the classroom to workplace for educators, students and dietetic professionals; and
- Assemble collective advocacy to further research and education to inform anti-racist dietetic practice in Canada.
This session was pre-recorded for the National DC Conference 2022.
