From Supermarket Retail Dietitian Guests
“I like Shopping for Health because it’s a smaller, more intimate conference. Restricting the number of attendees and sponsors allows for people to get to know each other and create real connections within the field. It also allows for me to get to know some of the sponsors better, and we were actually able to partner with one for our team of RDs after the conference.”
“Compared to previous retail dietitian conferences I’ve attended, Shopping for Health wins by a landslide. It put me in close connection with other professionals in my field and helped me get to know many of the sponsors. SFH conference was very inspirational, and I’ve already changed some of my practices and am already seeing positive results.”
“I very much enjoyed the smaller scale, topics more focused for supermarket RDNs, and the networking.”
“This is the one thing I’ve said many times since I’ve been back: Shopping for Health is perfectly tailored to what I do. I love that it’s directed and pertinent to what I do on a daily basis.”
“I think the smaller format is a highlight of this meeting. We usually rotate who goes to these events so that everyone has an opportunity to attend.”
“I enjoy the small intimate group. It allows you to make the most use of your time, networking time and time with sponsors.”
“Shopping for Health is just the right size to be able to meet and intimately chat with other retail RDs and I found that to be so beneficial. At larger conferences intimate networking is a bit more difficult as there are so many more people present.”
