Keynote Speaker Christine Johnston invites you to take the Learning Connections Inventory – FREE!

The Learning Connections Inventory© (LCI) is a statistically valid and reliable instrument that measures the degree to which a person uses four interactive patterns of learning and operation. Dr. Johnston will be discussing her research during the keynote session and has kindly made the tool available to all attendees.

If you have registered for SNEB 2015, look for an email titled “SNEB 2015 Conference Attendees – Update #2.” That email will have a link to the instructions on completing your free assessment.

If you haven’t registered for conference yet, the online registration link will be live through July 13. After that date you can register onsite in Pittsburgh. Either way you’ll also receive instructions on taking the Learning Connections Inventory.

Day 26 – Plan now for SNEB 2016 in San Diego

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Day 26 – Plan now for SNEB 2016 in San Diego
Jun 292015

Its only 26 days until the SNEB Annual Conference in Pittsburgh but its not too early to plan for attending the 2016 Annual Conference in San Diego. The Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina will be the conference hotel.

Our conference theme is Next Practice in Nutrition Education. Oliver Quinlan, author of The Thinking Teacher, writes, “Recently I have realised that ‘next practice’ is not about the goal, it is about the journey. In most cases this is going to take a fair bit of learning from others, of looking at the current ‘best practice’, but fundamentally I think it is not about emulation but about a research based approach to constant evaluation and development. ‘Next practice’ is a commitment to a process not an end product. In moving from ‘best practice’ to ‘next practice’ we acknowledge that the best solutions come from development.”

The Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior (JNEB) announces the 2015 Best Article and Best Great Educational Material (GEM) awards which will presented at the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior (SNEB) annual conference, “Creativity and Innovation in Nutrition Education,” in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, July 25–28, 2015.  These annual awards recognize the authors of the best article and best GEM, published in the prior year in JNEB, as judged by members of the JNEB Journal Committee and Board of Editors.  All authors will receive a plaque and the lead authors will receive a monetary award.

The Best Article Award will be presented to authors Cassandra S. Diep, Tzu-An Chen, Vanessa F. Davies, Janice C. Baranowski, and Tom Baranowski for their article “Influence of Behavioral Theory on Fruit and Vegetable Intervention Effectiveness Among Children: A Meta-Analysis” published in the November 2014 issue of JNEB. The best article was selected from 81 published articles, briefs, and reports.  Dr. Diep will present the results of the Best Article following the conference opening keynote on Sunday, July 26.

The Best GEM award was presented to authors Susan S. Baker, Patricia Kendall, Kristen Frey, Kathryn McGirr, Mary Schroeder, Janet Buffer-Pealer, and Lydia C. Medeiros for their paper “GEM No. 539 Healthy Baby, Healthy Me Food Safety Curriculum,” published in the November 2014 issue of JNEB.  GEMs are resources developed to educate on certain topics or distribute programs to help in the nutrition education field.  The best GEM was selected from 13 published GEMs.

Day 30 – Watch for QR Codes

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Day 30 – Watch for QR Codes
Jun 252015

We are so excited to have the USDA NIFA grant recipients bringing their research update posters to the conference again this year. Joining them for the first time are the FNS Team Nutrition researchers. These poster sessions will take place Tuesday, July 28 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Over 60 of these presentations have been gathered prior to conference and will be available online as supplemental content to the July/August issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior

While you are at this session look for QR code artwork in the corner of the poster board. Scan the code with your phone or tablet to link to a full version of the poster artwork. Some popular QR code scanning apps are QR Reader, QR Code Reader, Red Laser, or Qrafter. This is a great way to remind yourself of the research you want to review more closely after the conference.

If you aren’t attending conference but are interested in the poster presentations, they will be free to download from after July 25.

On Sunday, July 26 from 7 to 8 a.m. we’ll start the day with “A Taste of Yoga, Massage, and Energy Work” led by SNEB member Diane Dembicki, PhD Nutrition, Licensed Massage Therapist, certified Yoga Teacher, and Reiki Master.

A sampler for all body types and fitness levels to do some gentle stretching, guided relaxation and meditation, a little healing touch, and finishing with energizing, for body, mind, and spirit, for a wonderful send off to happily continue your day. Yoga mats are preferable if you have one; towels from the hotel are fine otherwise.
