Stagnito + Edgell Named Accredited Continuing Professional Education Provider for Registered Dietitians
Stagnito + Edgell is pleased to announce that it has earned Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Accredited Provider status from the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), the credentialing agency for the 75,000-member Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics — the world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals.
Stagnito + Edgell earned the credential following a rigorous application process demonstrating that it successfully met 12 educational and ethical standards for content provided at its annual Progressive Grocer Retail Dietitian Symposium.
“Stagnito is delighted that CDR recognizes our commitment to providing the best-quality educational offerings to retail dietitians,” says Jeffrey Friedman, Progressive Grocer, VP Group Brand Director. “Our goal is to help registered dietitians excel in the retail arena and the Accredited Provider credential is a strong sign that we’re on the right track.”
As a CPE Accredited Provider, Stagnito + Edgell is recognized not only by CDR, but also by dietetics professionals, and licensure and certifying agencies as a provider that meets CDR's standards for continuing professional education.
“Gathering information from our Advisory Board of retail dietitians, consulting dietitians, our annual retail dietitian survey and attendee evaluations from past Symposia are key steps that help us plan relevant educational events,” says Friedman. “Tapping into these resources is a key reason Stagnito + Edgell succeeded in securing the Approved Provider credential.”
The next Progressive Grocer Retail Dietitian Symposium will be held on May 23 and 24, 2016, in Chicago, with nearly 50 retail dietitians from around the country expected to attend. Progressive Grocer will host a special awards ceremony at the Symposium to honor recipients of its first-ever Retail Dietitian Outreach Innovation Award.
