Social media is one way to reach many people with nutrition information. It may also be a viable way to recruit people into programs. Online networks can be a way to positively influence/support behavior change.
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.
As you can imagine, a webinar with over 250 live attendees from more than 30 countries generated a lot of questions! The presenters of SNEB's "What's In a Name" webinar have created a follow-up document addressing questions that were not addressed live due to time constraints. Download that document here.

The IU School of Public Health-Bloomington is proud to announce Alyce Fly, PhD, CFC has been named a 2015 Trustees Teaching Award Recipient. These annual awards were established to honor individuals who have a positive impact on learning through the direct teaching of students, especially undergraduates. Dr. Fly is an associate professor of Dietetics and Nutrition Science, and mentors graduate students in the Nutrition Science, Kinesiology, Environmental Health, and Anthropology programs. In addition to teaching, she is currently examining fruit and vegetable behaviors of children and adolescents in Indiana schools, and interventions to improve these behaviors at school.
Oxford University Press
"Food and Nutrition Economics" offers a much-needed resource for non-economists looking to understand the basic economic principles that govern our food and nutritional systems. The book is co-authored by SNEB member Elena L. Serrano. Comprising both a quick grounding in nutrition with the fundamentals of economics and expert applications to food systems, it is a uniquely accessible and much-needed bridge between previously disparate scholarly and professional fields.
8 a.m. to 3 p.m. | Saturday July 30 | Reservation required | 7 CEUs

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:
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.
- 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.
With the recently expanded scope of Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior (JNEB), we are planning a special issue devoted to nutrition economics. Dr. Joanne Guthrie will author the opening Perspective, and we are hoping for many excellent articles to progress through our peer review.
Topics include but are not limited to behavioral economics, consumer food behavior as it relates to economics, cost benefits of programs, food budgeting and related areas, or how economic status of individuals or communities affects food access or intake.
To be considered for this special issue to be published in November, manuscripts should be submitted through JNEB's submission system by June 15. Questions should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief Dr. Karen Chapman-Novakofski at firstname.lastname@example.org.

New research published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior has found that kids can now increase their vegetable and fruit intake, which is said to be an ideal for a healthy lifestyle, by using serious video games. Researchers evaluated how creating an implementation intentions (i.e. specific plans) within the goal-setting component in the game helped the fourth- and fifth-grade students improve fruit and vegetable intake at specific meals.
Our new report, launched to mark World Water Day 2016, reveals that the poorest people in the world are paying the highest price for safe water — and calls on governments to act now for universal access.
Since 2011, people throughout the country — at campuses, churches, state departments of agriculture, public schools and city halls — have used Food Day to educate their communities and promote improved public policies.
The only treatment for celiac disease is a gluten-free diet. However, the increasing prevalence of CD does not account for the disproportionate increase in growth of the gluten-free food industry (136 percent from 2013 to 2015). A commentary scheduled for publication in The Journal of Pediatrics discusses several of the most common inaccuracies regarding the gluten-free diet.

New guidelines from the International Diabetes Federation are the most comprehensive to date to address diabetes and Ramadan, including religious as well as medical guidance.

Hispanics made up 17 percent of the U.S. population, or some 55 million people in 2014. In 2014, 14.0 percent of all U.S. households were food insecure, versus 22.4 percent of Hispanic households. Food insecurity varies among Hispanic subpopulations by origin, immigration status, household composition, state and metro/suburban residence.

Six universities have been awarded nearly $4 million in funding by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to help fight obesity and improve the health of our nation's children. The USDA is also accepting applications for up to $7 million for additional projects next year.
British Journal of Medicine
A new study by the University of Liverpool's Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease has identified food stuffs that can help prevent chronic inflammation that contributes to many leading causes of death.
A large worldwide study has found that, contrary to popular thought, low-salt diets may not be beneficial and may actually increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and death compared to average salt consumption. In fact, the study suggests that the only people who need to worry about reducing sodium in their diet are those with hypertension who have high salt consumption.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration took a major step in making sure consumers have updated nutritional information for most packaged foods sold in the United States that will help people make informed decisions about the foods they eat and feed their families.
