ASN's Advances and Controversies in Clinical Nutrition Conference kicked off Friday afternoon and will continue through Sunday, February 27. Attendance at this conference has exceeded our expectations, with more than 330 clinicians and investigators gathered in San Francisco, CA. With a superb line-up of speakers on topics affecting all aspects of clinical nutrition, the symposium opened with a talk on fortification versus supplementation and continued with engaging discussion on Vitamin D. Day One's theme was Dietary Supplements; on Saturday, we confront Obesity, Diet & Disease.

At the poster reception tonight, more than 50 authors will discuss their recent findings. You can read the abstracts in our On-Site Program & Exhibits Guide, available for download on the ASN website.

As Experienced by Attendees & Exhibitors

"ASN is a very well-known organization, and I always have an excellent experience at their meetings - increasing my knowledge and networking. This conference is exciting because its exclusive focus is on nutrition and diet. I am delighted to present my poster, 'Knowledge of College Students about Food-Sustainable Practices' (poster #49)."
- Setareh Torabian-Riasati, DrPH, California State University, Northridge

"Here in San Francisco, a diverse group of health care professionals interested in nutrition has gathered to learn from a powerhouse list of speakers. I am looking forward to attending the sessions and getting to know the attendees."
- Anna Rosales, RD, Yakult USA
