Whether you are attending SNEB 2015 in Pittsburgh or just want to keep up with the happenings from home, keep an eye on social media. On Twitter the conference hashtag is #SNEB2015 and we’ll be tweeting from @snebonline.

Follow SNEB on Facebook.

If you have conference photos, upload to our Flickr group.

The Student Committee posts to Instagram at snebonline.



The annual conference supplement of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior is now online. All of the oral and poster abstracts are available to view online along with the NIFA and FNS abstracts and posters (including the poster artwork as supplemental material). This is a great chance to decide which researchers you want to speak with.



If you are driving to the annual conference Pittsburgh download this information about parking in the area of the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown. They offer overnight valet parking through Pittsburgh Valet for $30 per night but availability is limited.


With concurrent sessions, division activities, and nearly 300 abstract presentations, it is a good idea to decide your must-do sessions in advance. Download pages from the conference program to get a head start.

You won’t believe how much information we put on or in your 3 inch x 4 inch conference name tag!

Members of the SNEB leadership, sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers, new members, speakers, scholarship recipients, student research award winners, JNEB platinum, gold and silver authors and staff are wearing ribbons that identify themselves.

SNEB Division members can be identified by a colored circle or star on their badge. Please pick up your colored circle or star at the Registration Desk.

Division Sticker Key

Communications = Silver Star
Food & Nutrition Extension Education = Green Dot
Healthy Aging Light = Blue Dot
Higher Education = Yellow Dot
International Nutrition Education = Red Star
Nutrition Education for Children = Blue Ribbon
Nutrition Education with Industry = Gold Star
Public Health Nutrition = Blue Dot
Social Marketing = Orange Dot
Sustainable Food Systems = Green Star
Weight Realities = Red Dot

Plus! Tucked behind your name tag will be any tickets for special functions you are registered to attend as well as a pocket schedule. Your name tag will end up being one valuable little rectangle.

Additionally! The rising star symbol can be found on the name badges and published abstracts of attendees potentially interested in pursuing further graduate studies. This symbol is intended to help university faculty members identify and connect with potential future graduate students during the conference.


If you need a computer or just a little room to spread out your notes, there is a speaker ready room on the second floor. It will be open all day – 30 minutes prior to the start of the first session until the start of the final session. Remember, if you want your presentation to be posted online, email that to Rachel at rdaeger@sneb.org at any point. There will also be a folder on the desktop of the computer in the speaker ready room – I’ll check that for presentations too.
