Learning Lounge: Are You Invisible? Why Your Digital Footprint Matters!
Are you invisible? Without a digital footprint you may be. The term ‘digital footprint’ may call to mind something negative like an embarrassing photo or inappropriate tweet, but a digital footprint can also be a crucial link to the important work RDNs do. No matter what setting you are working in, you need to be seen and counted—and without a digital footprint, you may be invisible. RDNs are vital in the continuum of care, and a data footprint can show RDN impact on outcomes, and can also strengthen the financial case for payment of nutrition care provided by RDNs. Your digital footprint is affecting you in ways you can’t imagine; leave yours to better secure your future!
