Unbelievable – not least of all, because licensed healthcare professionals who engage in a literal vendor-provided cash grab cross an ethical line in my book. This profession is its own worst enemy a lot of the time. It’s a shame, because the great RDs out there have to live down this malarkey.
Hat tip to Dr. Yoni Freedhoff who shared this. Why not skip the expense of the cash-blowing booth and just walk around the Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo and shout, “Hey all you RDs! Listen up! We’ll give you CASH and (wink-wink) you can tell everyone about your great experience with Thrive ice cream and that way people will think it’s healthy, even though it’s not!”
Oh, wait, THAT would be honest, instead of manipulative.
