Sheila King, CMP, SNEB Director of Meetings, took home a top honor at the recent Meetings Professionals International (MPI) Indiana Chapter IMPRESS Awards.
Sheila was recognized as MPI Indiana’s Member of the Year. This award recognizes the commitment of a member in influencing the life of the Chapter and is based on the ability of the recipient to motivate others, stimulate volunteer functions, and give a sense of direction and act as a catalyst to cause exceptional results that benefit the Chapter. Sheila served as volunteer co-chair for the event’s Great Lakes Educational Summit earlier this year, which brought together leading meeting planners from across the Midwest to discuss hot topics in the meetings industry and make connections with the vendors they need to be successful.
Join us in congratulating Sheila!

This presentation describes how the cultural views of cultural diversity have influenced how nutrition educators have been trained in cultural competence and how this training needs to change because of the changing demographics of the US population. It explores how these views are changing in reaction to the changing demographics and health disparities seen in the US today and how the cultural training of nutrition educators has not kept up with these changing views. Suggestions for how this cultural education could be modified include placing a greater emphasis on both the cultural self-awareness of nutrition educators and the sociopolitical historical factors that influence the cultural orientation of nutrition educators and their clients.
- Describe how the description of cultural diversity in the US has shifted from being viewed as a "melting pot" to a "salad bowl" and how this has affected the cultural education of nutrition educators.
- Identify why it is important for nutrition educators and health professionals to learn about their own cultural and ethnic background and become more self aware as a cultural being.
- List the core elements in creating a cultural education for nutrition educators that is aligned to today's changing U.S. demographics.

I remember the first time I told my parents that I wouldn't be joining them for dinner because I wasn't hungry. Their reply? But it's TIME for dinner. My approach to eating has served me well over the years — eating when hungry and eating s-l-o-w-l-y - I am usually the last person at a table to finish eating. In this article I look at intuitive/mindful eating and body positivity and provide some resources.

Over the past few decades, a growing body of public health and social science research has made it clear that there is an inextricable link between the design of where we live, work, and play and human health. In 2010, the City of New York released the Active Design Guidelines, which details many of the ways design can be leveraged to promote health. This evidence-based and multi-disciplinary approach communicates built environment and health research findings in a way that is easily accessible to practitioners. It has now reached over 15,000 professionals across the globe.
Farm Bill Law Enterprise
Three reports out today from the Farm Bill Law Enterprise (FBLE) apply a justice lens to the farm bill debate underway on Capitol Hill. Each report presents a set of recommendations along a particular theme, and every recommendation is the product of thorough research, holistic evaluation, and extensive consultation among FBLE partners and with stakeholders across the food and agricultural system. Together, these reports provide a sweeping set of policy recommendations that span the entire farm bill and touch nearly every corner of the food system.
