RDBA Virtual Experience: What You Need To Know

Just as 9-11 forever changed airline travel, the coronavirus pandemic will have long-lasting impacts on how consumers procure and consume food. RDBA Virtual Experience: What You Need to Know will help retail dietitians ensure they are positioned for leadership in this new era. Data suggests three significant changes in consumer behavior coming out of the pandemic are eating at home, online grocery shopping, and staying healthy and well, and no one within the retail setting is more equipped to lead at the intersection of these shopper trends than dietitians, shaping the focus of this virtual event.
