7th International Conference on Nutrition & Growth

To adapt to travel restrictions and the role of social distancing as a result of COVID-19, the N&G Organizing Committee has come to the decision to transform the 7th Nutrition and Growth Conference into a fully virtual meeting.

The virtual conference will take place on 27-29 August 2020. Virtual sessions will allow live interaction and will be available on-demand in the weeks following the Conference. N&G 2020 is the top meeting point to keep up to date with the rapidly advancing knowledge in the nutrition and growth field. The Conference brings together paediatricians, nutritionists, neonatologists, experts in child development and other specialists to discuss the nutrition and growth challenges in the paediatric age group.

Webinars: The Nutrition Society Training Academy

One contribution to the IUNS Capacity Development opportunities is the Nutrition Society of the UK and Ireland Training Academy. IUNS already collaborates with the Nutrition Society in the e-Nutrition Academy.

The Nutrition Society launched its Training Academy (NSTA) during 2018. The aim of which is to assist nutrition scientists in meeting their needs at various stages of career development.

The live webinars run at lunch time in the UK (GMT). To make these more widely accessible and give the greatest benefit to its international members, the Nutrition Society have made pre-recorded webinars available. Once you register for one of these, you will have the opportunity to select a suitable time from the various times and date options available.

The webinars are open to everyone. However, members of the Nutrition Society are eligible for an 80% reduction on the cost of a members’ registration fee, for all NSTA webinars, both live and pre-recorded. This means that Nutrition Society members are eligible to register for any of the NSTA webinars for only £5. The full offering of webinars is available here.  Each webinar provides 60 minutes of content, a certificate of CPD, and a full summary report. When registering for any of the webinars, use the promotion code LMIC5 to apply your discount at the checkout.

If you have any queries regarding the training offered by the NSTA, or would like to discuss registration further, please contact training@nutritionsociety.org.
