Example studies may include experimental or quasi-experimental, cross-sectional, longitudinal, preliminary or pilot study findings, needs assessment outcomes, development/validation of new measures or research methods, and more. If you are interested in describing the evaluation of a nutrition education intervention, you are encouraged submit your abstract to the Program Abstract.  For further clarification, please watch the Research Abstracts information video.
