Hunter College recently featured Tisch Food Center Executive Director and SNEB President-Elect Pam Koch in an article about NYC food system thinkers and doers. Read her profile here.
SNEB's highly relevant nutrition educator competencies provide a useful checklist for practitioners, academics making curricular decisions, and researchers evaluating program impacts domestically and globally.
SNEB leadership and staff hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. We are prepared to adapt Annual Conference plans, policies and published deadlines as needed while adhering to all health, safety, and travel guidelines.
In the unfortunate circumstance that a cancellation is necessary, SNEB will automatically refund 100% of registration fees within 30 days of when that decision is made. Regardless, all accepted abstracts will be published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.
We are moving forward with realistic optimism that we will be able to gather in person this July 18-21 in San Diego.

The presentation will share findings of a qualitative study conducted with SNAP-Ed leaders in California in 2015-16. At that time, the state was newly implementing guidelines to ensure that SNAP-Ed programs integrate policy, systems, and environmental change interventions rather than deliver more traditional nutrition education programs in isolation. The presentation will discuss the processes, facilitators, and barriers reported by leaders in planning, implementing, and evaluating local programs.

Faith-based research and partnerships are becoming more popular as an approach to address the health of underserved populations including racial and ethnic minorities and rural populations. Despite growing interest in faith-health partnerships, little research is available assessing faith-based interventions as potential leverage points for the prevention of childhood and adolescent obesity and the promotion of healthy behaviors. Dr. Dunn will discuss her recent work focused on examining faith-based communities as leverage points for the prevention of child and adolescent obesity from conceptualization to implementation. This work was completed in partnership and with the support of the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Fairfield County Community Coordinating Council (SC).

In light of numerous extension requests due to the COVID-19 pandemic, JNEB has decided to extend the deadline for its call for papers related to Sustainable Management of Food. Accepted papers will be published in a special theme issue in 2021. Editors are calling for all journal article types focused on reductions in food loss and waste that involve behavioral changes. If you have such an article, the deadline for submission is now SEPTEMBER 15, 2020. You can learn more about the issue and how to submit on
the Journal website.
How we define scholarship within any discipline is fluid, and this changes with theoretical and practical applications, hopefully improving our teaching and our students' learning in a demonstrable manner.

Amid the extremely challenging impacts of the COVID-19 virus, California WIC successfully completed the monumental statewide rollout of the new California WIC electronic debit card, adoption of a new computer system called WIC WISE (WIC Web Information System Exchange) and release of the California WIC app.
The current global pandemic — and measures taken to reduce its spread — have disrupted food environments around the world. Never has a larger spotlight been placed on the ways people meet the food systems for getting the nutrition they, and their family need.
