Using Evidence-Based Nutrition Science: Achieving Healthier Organizations and Communities

This 2.5 day course will translate insights from new nutrition research into practical guidance for your organization or community. The program will cover the latest in-depth knowledge emerging from nutrition science, explore important controversies, translate lessons from failed attempts to shift stubborn nutrition and food choices, and identify concrete opportunities to pursue. Participants will engage with respected experts in evidence-based nutrition, obesity, food insecurity, sustainability, food policy, and food safety through real-life case studies and focused discussions. Issues such as food and calorie quality, effective approaches for influencing consumer behavior, promotion of plant-based diets, the role of marketing in food choice, and lessons learned from unsuccessful efforts aimed at improving healthy eating will be the focus of large and small group interaction.
