Beef checkoff meets with dietitians to talk protein

The beef checkoff, in partnership with the Egg Nutrition Center and National Dairy Council, recently shared checkoff-funded protein research with the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group at their annual symposium in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Approximately 430 registered dietitians recently attended the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group Annual Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colo., where the beef checkoff was in attendance and presented research on the protein benefits beef offers.

"The evidence-based Advanced Practice Protein Summit held during the symposium provided a great opportunity for the checkoff to discuss protein science, misperceptions and contemporary applications for practitioners," says Jo Stanko, Nutrition & Health Subcommittee co-chair and cow-calf producer from Steamboat Springs, Colo. "It was also a venue to share valuable checkoff-funded protein research with nutrition communicators for the purpose of continued relationship-building.”
