July 20-24, faculty, staff, and students with the Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education and Policy attended the 50th Annual Conference for the Society of Nutrition Education and Behavior (SNEB) in Washington D.C.

Along with partners from The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics; Center for Science in the Public Interest; Purdue University; and Food Nutrition Policy Consultants; the Tisch Food Center hosted a pre-conference session intended to equip nutrition education practitioners with the skills and confidence to speak to their elected officials. As part of this effort, the Tisch Food Center facilitated SNEB members making over 20 visits to their Members of Congress across eight states: Florida, Maryland, New York, Virginia, Indiana, Washington, Iowa, and Ohio. Advocates highlighted importance of nutrition education in their home state and district.
