COVID-19 UPDATE (March 27)

Dear SNEB Community,

Society leadership and staff hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. We are hearing from members around the world who are using their expertise to support the most vulnerable in their communities while educators pivot quickly to keep their students engaged.

Clearly, we are living in a difficult time where tough decisions are being made to get us through this public health crisis. It is a very fluid situation. SNEB leadership and staff are prepared to adapt Annual Conference plans, policies and published deadlines as needed while adhering to all health, safety, and travel guidelines. Watch for weekly updates in Monday’s ACPP Policy Update email, in the bi-weekly eCommunicator, and here on the SNEB website.

Our conference plays a critical role in connecting more than 600 nutrition educators from around the world to share their work. With that in mind, we are forming contingency plans so this pertinent information can still be shared and discussed.

In the unfortunate circumstance that a cancellation is necessary, SNEB will automatically refund 100% of registration fees within 30 days of when that decision is made. Regardless, all accepted abstracts will be published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.

We are moving forward with realistic optimism that we will be able to gather in person this July 18-21 in San Diego.

Best regards,

Jennifer Wilkins, PhD, RD, President
Pam Koch, EdD, RD, President-Elect & Conference Chair
Jasia Steinmetz, PhD, RD, Vice President
Rachel Daeger, CAE, IOM, Executive Director

In 1980, Dr. Joan Dye Gussow said, “teaching about food and nutrition is the most important educational activity of a society.” Forty years later we are broadening our focus to address today’s critical food system issues, in addition to promoting public health. Our planet is in crisis. Soil degradation, water scarcity and pollution, severe weather, biodiversity loss, and climate change are no longer future possibilities. They are upon us. Additionally, too much of our food supply promotes diseases such as type two diabetes that reduce quality of life and increase health care costs, and it is the poor and people of color who are afflicted most severely. How we produce our food is part of the problem but could be part of the solution. Switching to soil-building, water saving, carbon sequestering regenerative agriculture and to diets with more whole and plant-based foods, and fewer processed foods improves food systems and public health. Yet, we know food and nutrition is a politically charged subject and our profession will have to confront entrenched power structures by taking on Big Food. While this will not be easy, it is critical. This conference will imagine, and plan for how nutrition education, rooted in food, can move us to a new food future.
