Time (Eastern) Sessions & Descriptions
11:00 a.m. - 11:10 a.m. Welcome & Announcements from President and Conference Chair
11:10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Keynote - George M. Briggs Science Symposium: New Expectations of Food Systems and Nutrient and Dietary Recommendations (1.25 Live/1.25 On-Demand)
Sponsored by the SNEB Foundation

 

Expectations of the food system now include reduction of diet-related chronic disease and associated health-care costs, reduced in its environmental footprint, and the economic sustainability of agriculture. The Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) provide guidance on the nutrient needs of healthy people. Increasingly, the endpoints used to establish DRIs are moving towards endpoints related to chronic disease prevention as nutrient deficiencies are rare and over 50% of adult Americans suffer from one or more diet-related chronic diseases, This session will explore thought-provoking questions about the new expectations of the food supply and their impact on DRIs and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs). Furthermore, challenges in establishing standards of evidence and potential tradeoffs among the health, environmental and economic expectations of the food system will be addressed.

New York Covid-19 Impact on Food System (COIFS): Evaluation Rationale and Framework

The Covid-19 pandemic has upended almost every aspect of New York’s food system: food growers and the food workforce face numerous challenges, more people face food insecurity, as well as deepening racial inequities. Government and philanthropy rapidly responded with new programs and policies. Systematic evaluation is needed to understand what worked and what did not — and why. This session will describe the rationale for evaluation and the “Covid-19 Food System Response Multi-Level Evaluation Framework,” that captures evidence to inform program improvement and policy implementation and better prepare the food system to respond to future crises.

Tools of the Trade: Using NCCOR’s Measures Registry Resource Suite in the field

Selecting appropriate measures to evaluate nutrition and physical activity programs can be challenging, especially given the plethora of information available on measurement. Recognizing a need to standardize measures used in the childhood obesity prevention field, the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research developed the Measures Registry, User, Guides and recently released Learning Modules. This session describes how to use this suite of tools to select appropriate measures for evaluation and research and will highlight the new Learning Modules, a series of short dynamic modules highlighting key considerations for measurement designed to help build the capacity of public health practitioners, researchers, new professionals, and students. The session will also focus on the experiences of the panel of SNEB members who have used these resources in their own work so that session attendees can learn about direct ways to use these tools in their communities.
