2019 AHF NATIONAL CONFERENCE ARIZONA

PRESIDENT'S CORNER

A S.W.O.T. analysis is like a business plan, it’s a way of developing, listing, identifying if you may, an organized list of your department’s greatest strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.

 

To get the most out of your S.W.O.T. analysis, work on it as a team project with different people from different parts of your department or even outside of your department as a fresh eyes sort of thing. The more diversity and perspective you have, the better your outcome will be.

VALUED MEMBER OF THE MONTH

I graduated from Hunter College and received RD credentials in 1996. I went to do internship at Harlem Hospital Center and Ms. Gloria Grace, Director of Nutrition Services at Harlem Hospital at that time hired me as a Clinical Dietitian out of my internship. Then I came to work as a Clinical Dietitian at South Beach Psychiatric Center in March, 1997. During my college years, my interest in foods and nutrition grew tremendously.

ACA Has Been Ruled Unconstitutional – What Will Be The Impact On Your Business?

All over the news in the past few weeks was the recent ruling by a federal judge in Texas, calling the Affordable Care Act (ACA) unconstitutional. While this decision now opens the entire healthcare program up for debate, there currently is no impact on businesses.

GET BACK TO THE BASICS - "NUTRITION 101"

Whether we like it or not, we live in a world of social media. It exposes us to new trends and fads on a daily basis. This exposure affects the clothes we wear, the music we listen to, the things we say, and of course, what we eat

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH EGGS?

In 1961, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommended limiting dietary cholesterol based on research at the time which suggested high dietary cholesterol intake was linked to high levels of blood cholesterol levels. The biggest loser in this recommendation was the egg.
