WIND Symposium Reviews ⭐️


"This Symposium opened my eyes to many considerations I had not thought about before and helped me acknowledge some of my own privileges."

  • Spring Symposium 2021, Student Participant

"While I wish I could have attended live, or even better- in person, I felt the information and insights provided throughout the symposium were SO NEEDED. I feel so excited to take this information into my daily work."

  • Spring Symposium 2021, RDN participant

"This WIND symposium featured a diverse range of presentations, all valuable to my work as a weight-inclusive RD. I appreciated the discussions these presentations fostered and have lots of tangible ways to incorporate what I learned into my work. Thank you!"
