On this episode of Dietitians Discovered, Sarah sits down with Rosie Mensah, MPH, RD, a Toronto-based dietitian, creator of the CEDAR course and food justice advocate. Rosie chats about her lived-experience growing up food insecure in Toronto and how her early experiences inspired her to pursue a career in nutrition. Throughout her journey, she has worked extensively in the community as a food justice advocate and dietitian.
Rosie was recently appointed as a member of the Canadian Food Policy Advisory Council to help make meaningful progress on complex and systemic food issues. If that’s not impressive enough, Rosie also recently launched her own online course for nutrition professionals called Culture, Equity, Diversity and Race in Dietetics (CEDAR) to fill a gap in education about anti-racism, anti-oppression, and cultural competency in dietetics.
To finish it off, Sarah and Rosie do a lighting round of questions!
