Milwaukee Growing Power Tour
Visit the Growing Power facility at 5500 W. Silver Spring Drive in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This historic two-acre farm is the last remaining farm and greenhouse operation in the City of Milwaukee. Since 1999, our Community Food Center has provided a wonderful space for hands-on activities, large-scale demonstration projects, and for growing a myriad of plants, vegetables, and herbs. In a space no larger than a small supermarket live some 20,000 plants and vegetables, thousands of fish, and a livestock inventory of chickens, goats, ducks, rabbits, and bees. Tour the farm and learn about its six traditional greenhouses, aquaponics hoop houses, worm depository, anerobic digesters and rain water catchment system. You can also stop by the retail store where produce, meat, worm castings, and compost are sold to the community.

Opening Keynote
Jennifer Orlet Fisher, PhD, Temple University

Child eating self-regulation: plausible, but probable an environment of plenty?

The development of appetite regulation during childhood reflects the complex and dynamic interaction of nature and nurture.  It has been appreciated for the better part of a century that young children possess a capacity to self-regulate appetite in a manner that facilitates healthy growth.  At the same time, numerous facets of children's eating environments have been shown to promote excessive intake and are considered "obesogenic."  This presentation will highlight recent research on appetite regulation among young children.  Evidence of genetic and social influences on eating will be used consider the extent to which expectations for child self-regulation of eating are plausible vs. probable given the environment of plenty in which the eating habits of today's children are developing.

Returning Joy to Nutrition Education: Using the Satter Eating Competence and Feeding Dynamics Mode
Has your joy of being an educator been muted by expectations that you get your learners to adopt a particular nutrition message?
Learn to enjoy doing nutrition education by joining learners where they are in their eating attitudes and behaviors. Can you do this and still commit to nutrition education that is responsible and professional? The evidence says yes. Satter and Lohse analyze the Satter models of Eating Competence (ecSatter) and Feeding Dynamics (fdSatter), summarize the evidence, and explore how these models offer tools that you can use to engage learners in meaningful, effective and mutually enjoyable nutrition education.

Building a Better Restaurant
While there seems to be a lot happening to help consumers make healthy choices while eating out, many restaurants continue to undermine long-term health goals by creating conditions that encourage eating food that contains more calories, salt, sugar, and fat than recommended. This session will explore some of the efforts and initiatives taking place to help restaurants promote and serve healthier options, and will provide educators with ideas and tools to help them be advocates for healthy eating. Topics covered will include the new healthier restaurant guidelines developed by a group of experts through a RAND project; a new website that will consolidate menu information to highlight which restaurants are more likely to provide healthier options; and results from a recent analysis of existing restaurant certification programs based on their public health impact, cost, and implementation feasibility as well as recommendations for different policy options on implementing a restaurant certification program.

Speakers: Tracy Fox, MPH, RD, Food, Nutrition & Policy Consultants, LLC; Lenard Lesser, MD MSHS, Palo Alto Medical Foundation Research Institute; Jennifer Eder, MPH, The Center for Science in the Public Interest; Moderator: Tracy Fox, MPH, RD, Food, Nutrition & Policy Consultants, LLC

Evidence Based Practice in the Dynamic Field of Nutrition Education and Behavior
There is a need for more evidence-based adolescent interventions in the scientific literature. This session will provide insight into innovative program design elements to inspire participants to not only adopt healthy behaviors but become change agents among their family and friends, in some reliable, quantifiable way. Additionally, we will examine innovative ways to design and obtain measures for adolescent interventions that will lead to evidence based practices. Learn from the panel of experts in program development, evaluation and project management, how these strategies can help meet your program’s objectives and be adopted to settings outside the US for global reach.

Evaluating and Communicating Emerging Science
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.

Speakers: Michael Kelley, PhD, RD, Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company; Marianne Smith Edge, MS, RD, LD, FADA, Nutrition & Food Safety at the International Food Information Council; Ka He, PhD, Indiana University; Moderators: Frances Coletta, PhD, RD, Coletta Consulting and Alyce D Fly, PhD, CFS, Associate Professor, Institution:  Indiana University

Enhancing students’ intercultural competence through short-term study abroad experiences
Fostering intercultural competency among nutrition and dietetic students will assist them to communicate with diverse audiences and reduce health disparities among their future clients. Short term study abroad experiences can challenge the student’s perspective, excite a curiosity to learn about other cultures and ultimately encourage cultural sensitivity. A variety of nutrition-related short term study abroad experiences exist ranging from tourism to full cultural immersion; academic to service learning-oriented; and durations from 10-days to six-weeks. Designing a short-term study abroad experience can be accomplished through a variety of pathways but requires networking, creative partnerships, contingency planning and university support.

Wisconsin Food Security Project: Visualizing and Accessing Data on Food Access and the Food Security Infrastructure in Wisconsin
The WI food insecurity rate (11.3%) masks considerable intrastate variation. In the absence of sub-state food security estimates, the Wisconsin Food Security Project (WFSP), an interactive data and mapping tool, was developed to help planners and policymakers assess the local food security infrastructure. Employing a previously developed framework, the portal combines secondary data and local food-related resources (food retailers accepting SNAP, food pantries, farmers markets, schools offering breakfast, etc.) allowing users to explore interactive maps, charts, customizable profiles, and data downloads. The presentation will demonstrate how users can utilize the portal to inform community food security and food systems efforts.
