Get Involved in Research That Matters

Jeanette Menapace, RD, LD, is a member of the Dietetics Practice Based Research Network and was a participant in the Brief Motivational Interviewing for Overweight Children Study.

Menapace says she participated in the BMI2 study because she wanted the opportunity to work with children and their parents on healthful eating habits. She enjoyed working with a physician and believes strongly that registered dietitian nutritionists have a place in any physician's office, especially a pediatrician's. Healthy habits start young and with proper education and guidance, children can grow up to becoming healthy individuals.

In Menapace's words:
Participating in the study helped me realize the value in research. I have used studies to help make decisions about how to practice. This particular study has helped me to advance my motivational interviewing skills and build a rapport with the local pediatrician who I worked alongside.

Menapace encourages everyone to get involved in research because it helps shape the dietetics profession and proves RDNs are valuable and can have a positive impact on many health issues faced by our society.
