What Viewers Are Saying…

“This made my RD and Latina heart so happy.  I would definitely take another webinar in Spanish. It was especially helpful to have exposure to various names of foods in English and Spanish.  This will help me better connect with my Latinx clients from various countries in a more meaningful way…It was valuable to hear in both languages.  It is great that Oldways is always on the forefront of inclusivity, new learning approaches and meaningful content.”
