Having worked in both the clinical nutrition and food industry for over 10 years, we recognize a great need in our field for continuing education that focuses on culinary nutrition.

We founded this conference to create a space for interactive education that combines nutrition science with culinary arts, inspiration from trailblazers in our community and the opportunity to build new relationships with one another.

We thank you for being a part of this and sharing our vision for the future of nutrition in the kitchen!
