Open Full Event The Global Diet

Times of this event are in CAT

Level: Basic




The session will provide an overview of the Global Diet Quality Score (GDQS) metric and an interactive demonstration of the GDQS app for the collection of data used to tabulate the metric. First, we will provide a brief overview of the QDQS metric and a brief introduction to the GDQS app. Then we will divide participants into 2 working groups, each facilitated by Intake staff. Intake staff will project the app on the screen and conduct an interview with volunteer participants. This will enable all participants to view each screen live. After the interactive interview, we will facilitate a discussion with the group to answer questions and ascertain interest in how this application could benefit their work. Finally, all participants will return to the main group for the session wrap-up.
