Prevention Strategies for Childhood Obesity Online Certificate of Training Program

ADA and the ADA Foundation are encouraged by the level of attention being given to nutrition and physical activity from the White House and the First Lady's commitment to end childhood obesity within a generation. To prepare members to undertake this charge, ADA has developed its first online certificate of training program on childhood obesity prevention.

The Certificate of Training program consists of three separate modules that build on one another. Each offers 2 CPEUs:

  • Module 1: Childhood Obesity Prevention through Environmental Change: The RD's Role
  • Module 2: How Schools Work and How RDs Can Work With Schools
  • Module 3: The Registered Dietitian: Leading Prevention in Schools

To receive the certificate associated with this training, all three modules must be completed and participants must pass a final exam in Module 3 with an 80 percent score.

ADA members enjoy a reduced rate of $19 for each module; complete all three modules and earn 6 hours of CPEUs for $57.

This course was developed as part of Kids Eat Right, the ADA/ADAF initiative supported in part by the National Dairy Council. Kids Eat Right is a member-driven public education campaign that encourages all members to get involved to ensure sound nutrition recommendations are part of all childhood obesity prevention efforts.
