When we gather in San Diego at the 2020 Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior (SNEB) annual conference, long-time members, new members, and potential members will foster and strengthen our relationships, while we chart the course for the future of nutrition education. Charting the future of nutrition education is more important than ever because food is at the core of wicked problems related to ecological sustainability, racial and social equity, and personal health.

The Meatless Revolution
Radio Times / WHYY-FM
Air date: Sept. 4, 2019
Meatless burgers and nuggets aren't being marketed to only vegetarians anymore. Brands, like Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat, are targeting to meat lovers by replicating the taste and texture of beef and chicken and have even gotten on many fast food chains' menus. This podcast looks at the future of meat, from meat substitutes to lab-grown products, as well as the legal battles embroiling the words "meat" and "burger." Later in the discussion, they also talk about how our diet impacts climate change and animal welfare. The host interviews Kelsey Piper, a staff writer for VOX who has been tracking the meat alternative industry, and Jan Dutkiewicz, a post-doctoral fellow in political science at Johns Hopkins University.
