The IFNC | The International Food & Nutrition Conference exists to promote sustainable approaches in food and nutrition. With the further goal being to combat the disparities in childhood obesity, chronic diseases and food security. We’ve recently revamped our website, created a facebook page and a twitter profile, Google+, and LinkedIn. Please Like and Follow our pages and help us build our community. We hope in the coming months to continue to grow our membership and the channel the voices and knowledge of our active members into a lively community and content rich environment for all things food and nutrition. We’ve also created an email distro that you can sign up for and get the latest updates on the IFNC and relevant food and nutrition topics.
The IFNC is comprised of volunteers, scientist, researches and policy experts. This body is headed by Adelia C. Bovell-Benjamin, PhD, and Ralphenia D. Pace, PhD, RD, LD of Tuskegee University.
