COVID-19 Update: Annual Conference moving forward as scheduled

Posted by: on Tuesday March 10, 2020 coronavirus

Dear SNEB community,

As you know, concern over the COVID-19 outbreak is increasing globally. SNEB leadership and staff are staying on top of this developing situation at both global and local levels by monitoring the recommendations for events and practices issued by:

Based on current recommendations, there are no plans to cancel or postpone the Annual Conference, which begins in San Diego, CA in less than five months – July 18-21, 2020.

SNEB’s Annual Conference is the Society’s largest and single in-person event, providing an opportunity to advance nutrition education, research, practice and policy.

The conference also plays a critical role in connecting more than 600 nutrition educators from around the world. We take the safety and health of our attendees, members and staff very seriously. In our ongoing planning and organizing, SNEB will facilitate measures to ensure optimal health and sanitary conditions while we are together in San Diego.

In short, we are keeping your well-being front and center in our minds. We want to assure you we are doing everything within our control to convene a successful, safe, healthy (and inspiring!) Annual Conference.

As you plan your attendance, review our conference cancellation policy and the Sheraton’s hotel cancellation policy.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Society, and we look forward to seeing you in San Diego!

Best regards,

Jennifer Wilkins, PhD, RD, President
Pam Koch, EdD, RD, President-Elect & Conference Chair
