Online conference takes closer look at food systems

Current Issues in Nutrition

More than 100 people are in the midst of Current Issues in Nutrition, a two-part online conference from ISU Extension. They’re examining the social and economic perspectives of local food, sustainable food and traditional food systems. The conference began with archived presentations that registered participants could view online beginning Oct. 18. It concludes with a live webcast question and answer session Nov.18.

ISU Extension Nutrition Specialist Sarah Francis said the conference is of particular interest to registered dietitians, nutritionists, family consumer science educators, certified dietary managers, community supported agriculture (CSAs) operators and members and vocational agriculture educators.
