This program is designed for dietitians, diet technicians, students of nutrition and other healthcare professionals who are involved with the nutritional care of children.
See our conference brochure for a detailed agenda and listing of faculty.
We welcome abstracts from clinicians and students which could include case studies, successful educational tools, development of new services and clinics, public policy efforts, and current research in the nutritional management of pediatrics.
Two abstracts will be selected for oral presentation, one student author and one professional author, who will then receive free conference registration, if chosen.
All abstracts will be reviewed by the Nutrition Research Committee. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified via e-mail by March 27, 2020. Two abstracts will be selected for oral presentation, one student author and one professional author will present. Other accepted abstracts will provide poster presentations. Specific instructions for either the oral presentation or poster format will be sent to you if your abstract is accepted.

We will choose one student submission and one professional submission for oral presentation. Authors chosen for oral presentation will be notified by March 27, 2020.
