Nutrition and Lactose Intolerance Training
SUDIA hosted a nutrition communications training in June for registered dietitians and chefs in Jackson, Mississippi. Ten people from across the Southeast attended - Cheryl Atkinson, Professor and Dietetic Internship Director at Southern University and A&M College attended from Louisiana. The training focused on lactose intolerance and Dr. Jeannette Keith presented the latest research on the subject. SUDIA Staffer Laura Buxenbaum led a breakout session which included a taste test of lactose free dairy, dairy alternatives and tradition dairy products.

Communications trainer Joan Horbiak worked with the group, teaching them how to perform a low-lactose recipe demonstration on camera, while delivering strong dairy and nutrition messages. Guests also enjoyed a welcome dinner and luncheon at Seafood R'evolution with Chef John Folse. Mississippi dairy farmer Michael Ferguson attended the luncheon and was able to share his personal story about dairy farming with the guests.
