Championing Public Health Nutrition 2010, CSPI

Ottawa, Ontario
October 25-October 26, 2010

Museum of Nature, 240 McLeod Street

The Centre for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our national conference, “Championing Public Health Nutrition 2010.”

This event will explore leading edge developments in nutrition science and policy, the economic and public finance aspects of diet-related disease, sodium reduction, nutrition labelling on restaurant menus, school nutrition, child protection, national initiatives to coordinate food policies and strategies, public policy advocacy, and much more!

Who: Scientists, policy-makers, public health and child advocates, and journalists.  Championing Public Health Nutrition 2010 is a "must-attend" event for federal, provincial or municipal policy-makers, health researchers, health journalists, nutrition-promoters, child and health advocates, educators, and anyone concerned about the diets of Canadians!

Why: We will explore ways to prevent diet-related cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancers, and obesity, and enjoy the fruits of increased economic productivity and reduced health care costs often wasted when governments rely too much on expensive medications and operations after we get sick.
