Since the early days of SNEB, there has been support among the membership for the Society to take an active role in educating members about nutrition policy. The membership has supported establishing and maintaining an active public policy program. The resolutions process is one of the mechanisms for members, or groups of members, to bring forth policy positions for a discussion and vote by the membership. Resolutions provide a route for members to propose that SNEB adopt a position, take an action, or endorse a policy or principles in a formal manner. Learn more about the resolutions process.
SNEB is pleased to partner with the Mediterranean Diet Roundtable (MDR) for its third annual conference, which will be held on May 15-16, 2017 in Boston, MA.

An open forum and a thought-provoking event offers educational tastings coupled with scientific evidence and the industry's best cases studies presented in a unique, intimate setting, illustrating the passion of Mediterranean culinary traditions.
Join us for an exciting presentation titled Mediterranean Diet Education, Policy and Practice Implications that will examine difficulties with following a healthful diet in Greece due to current food insecurity and emergency food system problem, research-based education programs that encourage a Mediterranean diet and lifestyle among Americans, and best communication practices to promote a healthful diet in the current digital and interconnected age.
