Based on current public health recommendations, there are no plans to cancel or postpone SNEB’s Annual Conference, which begins in San Diego, CA, in less than five months. We are keeping your well-being front and center in our minds. We want to assure you we are doing everything within our control to convene a successful, safe, healthy (and inspiring!) Annual Conference. SNEB’s conference leadership released a statement with more details earlier this week.
You can now register for SNEB’s Annual Conference this July 18-21 in San Diego. Dozens of speakers will present cutting-edge research and innovative programming being done across the nation and around the world from sustainability efforts in the food sector to school & university food service. Attendees will also hear from local nutrition workers about issues facing the conference’s host committee with a presentation on San Diego County Food Vision 2030.
In an editorial published in the new issue of JNEB, SNEB’s Division of International Nutrition Education (DINE) writes that, “Our food systems shape our diets, health, and nutrition outcomes at the same time as they impact the integrity of the planet and the stability of nations.
This presentation will discuss findings from a study that explored reasons why women engage in late-night eating and their perceptions about changing this behavior. We will also discuss how these qualitative findings informed the broader research story and future intervention efforts.
