The National Nutrition Research Roadmap: Measuring and Monitoring Individual Dietary Intake and the Food Environment
 
Wednesday, January 18, 2017  
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (ET)  


Part 2 of a four-part webinar series focusing on the questions and topics in the National Nutrition Research Roadmap 2016‒2021: Advancing Nutrition Research to Improve and Sustain Health.

The Interagency Committee on Human Nutrition Research developed the National Nutrition Research Roadmap to identify human nutrition research gaps and opportunities that should be addressed within the next five to ten years. This ASN webinar series will look at current human nutrition research opportunities offered by federal agencies based on the Roadmap.  

The second webinar will highlight research gaps and opportunities related to measuring and monitoring dietary intake and the food environment, in relation to the following topics highlighted by the Roadmap: How do we enhance population-level food- and nutrition-related health monitoring systems and their integration with other data systems to increase our ability to evaluate change in nutritional and health status, as well as in the food supply, composition, and consumption? and How can we enhance innovation in measuring dietary exposure, including use of biomarkers? By the end of this program, attendees will understand research gaps and opportunities, including the open funding opportunity announcements (FOAs), training opportunities, and research resources related to measuring and monitoring dietary intake and the food environment, as found in the National Nutrition Research Roadmap. Participants will have time to ask the speakers questions following the presentations.
