Evaluating and Communicating Emerging Science

Recorded at the 2014 Annual Conference and able to be viewed for free!

Speakers: Michael Kelley, PhD, RD, William Wrigley Jr. Company; Marianne Smith Edge, MS, RD, LD, FADA, International Food Information Council; Ka He, MD, ScD, MPH, Indiana University; Moderators: Frances Coletta, PhD, RD, Coletta Consulting and Alyce Fly, PhD, CFS, Indiana University
Provocative headlines tout the possibility of food “addictions” or the role of food in inhibitory control in resisting food reward. Similarly, analyses of longitudinal data from the China Health and Nutrition Survey demonstrate an association between MSG and overweight in this population. However, these two emerging areas of research may not be ready for prime time, and understanding the status of the current research on these topics is critical to providing appropriate guidance to clients and students. Experts will provide a summary of the science in these emerging areas, as well as specify tools for evaluating and communicating the science.
Organized by the Nutrition Education with Industry Division

Pittsburgh is within 500 miles of more than half the U.S. population and less than a 90-minute flight from 50% of North America’s population. It’s under 6 hours by car or train to 9 states, D.C. and Canada.

With a track record of flight delays traveling home from SNEB Conference, I’ll be driving from Indianapolis to Pittsburgh this year. Drive time will be five and a half hours straight across I-70, plus I might add a stop in Dayton, Ohio to see my nieces. As you plan your conference travel here are some options.

Pittsburgh International Airport is served by 12 passenger carriers:
Air Canada AirTran Airways American Airlines
Continental Airlines Delta Airlines JetBlue Airways
Midwest Airlines Northwest Airlines Southwest Airlines
United Airlines US Airways USA 3000

 

The Amtrak station is located in downtown Pittsburgh and is serviced by these routes:

  • The Pennsylvanian travels daily between New York City and Pittsburgh

To get you ready for this year’s conference we are sharing video presentations from the 2014 Annual Conference.

View the recording here.

This year we will learn about Collective Impact: Using Program Outcomes to Influence Policy and Programs on Monday, July 27 from 4 – 5:30 pm.
Speakers: Duke Storen, PhD, Share our Strength; Gabriela Mora, MPH, The Food Trust; Marci Scott, PhD, RD, Moderator, Michigan Fitness Foundation
Advocates for effective nutrition programs are in a constant battle to maintain funding and program integrity in the face of competing interests from policy makers and food industry. The best strategy for facing these challenges is to use program outcomes to engage decision makers and stakeholders in dialogue about how best to fund and operate these programs. Upcoming reauthorization of child nutrition and older adult programs presents an excellent opportunity for Society members and other nutrition educators and change agents to consider how they can examine the various facets of their programs and craft messages and strategies to positively influence policy decisions.
