All abstracts will be blinded and peer reviewed according to specific criteria. Authors will receive feedback based on a standardized evaluation form with an opportunity to resubmit if requested by reviewers.  All accepted abstracts will be published in a supplemental issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior for the Annual Conference.
