Newswise — INDIANAPOLIS (July 7, 2020) – The Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior is offering members of the media free registration to its 53rd Annual Conference “What Food Future?” held entirely online from July 20 – 24.

Times of crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic emphasize how vital a sustainable food system is to ensure healthy, affordable food at the local, national and global levels.

Dozens of speakers will present cutting edge research on hot topics like “New York COVID-19 Impact on Food System” or “Developing Nutrition Education Resources for Diverse Audiences.” View a full list of the innovative conference sessions here.

This year’s programming will focus on planetary health, healthy children and youth, the future of nutrition education, and more.

“Charting the future of nutrition education is more important than ever because food is at the core of major problems related to ecological sustainability, racial and social equity and personal health,” SNEB President-Elect Pamela Koch said.

Themed “What Food Future?”, the conference will imagine and plan for how nutrition education, rooted in food, can move us to a new food future.

“How we produce our food is part of the problem but could be part of the solution,” Koch said. “Switching to soil building, water saving, carbon sequestering regenerative agriculture and to diets with more whole and plant-based foods, but fewer processed foods, improves food systems and public health.”
