Current Issues in Nutrition

Despite advances in the scientific knowledge of nutrition over the past century, there is still mistrust of nutrition recommendations by the public. Media and social media amplify this mistrust by oversimplifying complex nutritional science findings or simply promoting nutrition misinformation. The 50th Current Issues in Nutrition Program will provide an overview of current research in human nutrition, ways practitioners can build and maintain public trust in that research, and resources available to help the public navigate nutrition recommendations amid concerns about government and industry bias. Featured speakers will include Dr. Woteki, who previously served as the Under Secretary for Research, Education and Economics at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is currently a Professor at Iowa State University and Ms. Sylvia Rowe, past president and chief executive office of International Food Information Council and currently with SR Strategy.
