Aging Well: Understanding the Role of Protein to Maintain Muscle Mass and Function
Join us for a webinar at 1 p.m. EDT on June 21. Register now.
Kathleen T. Morgan, Dr MH, NDTR, Rutgers University/Rutgers Cooperative Extension
The U.S. population is aging rapidly. With increased age, there is a marked increase in healthcare utilization that correlates with increasing clinical diagnosis. Sarcopenia is a common clinical indicator of health status in adults. Sarcopenia is a loss of muscle mass and strength. The rate of decline differs across the population, suggesting that modifiable behavioral factors like protein and lifestyle may be important influences on muscle function in older adult years. We will explore current protein recommendations by the Institute of Medicine and the Recommended Dietary Allowances. Both are arbitrary in considering the protein necessary to prevent functional decline with aging. This session is sponsored by the Healthy Aging Division.
Attendees will earn 1 CPE from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
- Explore the role of protein as a key nutrient in the elderly
- Examine the loss of skeletal muscle mass and its role in aging
- Identify our understanding of protein’s effects on muscle metabolism
- Identify protein recommendations that provide improved health outcomes.

Engaging Individuals and Communities to Promote Healthy Adult Development and Aging
By Jennifer Margrett, Human Development & Family Studies and the Gerontology Program, Iowa State University
Acknowledging multiple levels of influence on aging, a bioecological approach is an effective way to promote whole person wellness and optimal aging. This view point compels us to engage with and educate individuals, families and communities (both citizens and leaders). The Midlife and Beyond: The Whole Picture initiative was developed by a multidisciplinary team based in Human Sciences Extension and Outreach at Iowa State University in order to: (a) provide a forum for community conversations related to adult development and aging, (b) assist community members in identifying needs
and taking action to address the most pressing needs, and (c) provide an umbrella and resources supporting aging-related Extension and Outreach programs across the state.
Each year at the SNEB Annual Conference, FNEE sponsors a Pre-conference workshop. This year, for Next Practice in Nutrition Education in San Diego, we are excited to join with the Public Health Division to co-sponsor the pre-conference: Using Policy, Systems and Environmental (PSE) Change Interventions to Build Healthy Communities. The morning will kick off with PSE 101, then spotlight several successful interventions and provide an opportunity for table discussions of interventions that create and encourage healthy behaviors in communities. There will be 12 posters showcasing PSE work in the community.

The National Strategic Partnership, a collaboration of federal and community partners, and large, national organizations such as healthcare corporations, media outlets, grocery retailers, health professional associations, restaurant chains and food manufacturers met in May in Washington, D.C., to learn more about the new initiatives at the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP) and share ways to communicate the MyPlate messages.
Did you know that in 2015 only 15 percent of the systematic reviews submitted to JNEB were accepted?
Are you planning to publish part of your literature review for your dissertation?
This sessions allows you the chance to put focused time in on your research project, giving you a great head start on a completed review.
How to Conduct and Write Systematic Reviews for the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior is being offered as a pre-conference workshop from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 30 preceding the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior Annual Conference. Cost is $50 for students, $90 for SNEB members and $125 for non-members with breakfast and lunch included. Workshop attendees do not have to be registered for the annual conference.
Workshop is being conducted by Julie Reeder, PhD, MPH, CHES, State of Oregon WIC Program, Marla Reicks, PhD, RD, University of Minnesota; and Megan Kocher, MLIS, University of Minnesota Libraries.
The presenters will go through their own systematic review process in preparation for the workshop so they can candidly share their own experiences and how they dealt with or avoided the common pitfalls that come with conducting a review. Participants will be expected to complete a brief homework assignment prior to attending to optimize learning experiences during the workshop. Participants will actively engage in the steps of a systematic review process in a group-supported setting using a pre-selected topic of their choosing.
After the workshop participants will be able to:
Additional details are online here.
- Clearly differentiate a systematic review from other literature review approaches.
- Perfect the problem statement, one of the key steps to a successful systematic review.
- More effectively identify and collaborate with a research librarian/information specialist to increase the efficiency of the search process.
- Critically evaluate search results.
- Craft a succinct yet comprehensive report of review findings.
- Market the systematic review after publication.
Laurie M. Tisch Center
Have we moved beyond the paper survey? In a new study in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, Tisch Food Center Research Associate Heewon Lee Gray and colleagues reveal an innovative method for collecting data on kids' eating behaviors and attitudes about food.
The purpose of this guidance is to enhance consumers' ability to make informed choices among sweeteners by promoting accurate and consistent labeling. More specifically, this guidance is intended to advise the regulated industry of our view that the term "evaporated cane juice" is not the common or usual name of any type of sweetener and to assist manufacturers in appropriately labeling products that contain sweeteners derived from the fluid extract of sugar cane.

Losing weight and keeping it off doesn't require any magic or secret potions, but rather balance and consistency. That's a fact that hasn't changed for decades. What has changed, though, is how and what we've been eating. Although certain principles of healthy eating — such as being sure to eat your veggies and not overdoing portions — are evergreen, emerging science has even changed the diets of many nutrition professionals over the years.
