ILSI’s Nutrition & Health Program at ICN

ILSI is doing something it does best at the 2017 International Congress of Nutrition (ICN).

We are bringing together experts from around the globe to provide diverse disciplinary and geographic perspective on the science underlying hot nutrition and health topics.

Twenty-eight speakers from Asia, Europe, and the Americas will offer their unique insights on current science and on opportunities for moving science into health and wellness solutions. Many speakers will specifically address collecting and comparing data across geographic borders and cultures.

We’ve organized these seven sessions at ICN, below. Details, which include presentation abstracts, speaker biosketches, and handy Twitter guides for on-site discussion of the issues, are online.

We hope you are joining us in Buenos Aires for ICN. Complete program and registration information is available from the organizers at: 2017 ICN Program.

If you are not traveling to Argentina, watch for announcements from ILSI as copies of presentations and session videos become available.
