Advanced Practice Workshop (APW)



2023 Advanced Practice Workshop

The intended audience for the CPSDA Advanced Practice Workshop is being fine tuned to a very specific population in order to best serve the growth of our profession in its current state. This 1.5 day workshop aims to help sports RDs who are currently building or growing a program, those who have been newly promoted within their jobs to a more senior/director role, those who have been hired with the opportunity to grow a new program or those who’s program has been impacted by athletic department changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic . Guided discussions by a variety of veteran sports RDs will be used to help each attending sports RD think through their mission and vision for their program to establish a lasting infrastructure to meet the needs of their specific institution or organization.

CPSDA is committed to increasing diversity in the field of dietetics and encourages Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and all other underrepresented individuals to apply.

Who should attend?
Full time sports RDs who have been at their job for more than 6 months, whose program is in transition and is looking for guidance on how to better build their services into a program rather than just being utilized as a person on staff. Attendees may or may not have benefitted from mentorship already, but should be ready to take their career to a new level. They must be in a growth mindset to benefit. Veteran Sports RDs will provide insight into their own successes and shortcomings early in their careers for key learnings within the workshop. This will allow for thoughtful discussion and planning for the future of attendee’s sports nutrition programs within their own institution or organization.
