IDEA statement

Dietitians On Demand encourages and engages in efforts to diversify the dietetics profession to improve outcomes for all patients. To this end, we are actively participating in inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) initiatives in alignment with the goals of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Our efforts include, but are not limited to, the following: 

  • Consulting dietitians of color and those from diverse backgrounds to serve as content creators and educators. 
  • Providing clinical recommendations for people of all body sizes. 
  • Including sample patients with diverse backgrounds in practice patient scenarios. 
  • Choosing stock art images that portray people of all sizes, colors, ages, and abilities. 
  • Translating patient-facing resources to Spanish and creating low-literacy versions. 
  • In many cases, eliminating prices on continuing education programs to offer free education on a variety of topics. 
  • Incorporating cultural or religious food traditions in educational programs. 
  • Providing examples of culturally relevant nutrition interventions. 
  • Offering closed captioning for many of our webinar recordings for audiences who are hard of hearing.
