CNS 2019 Annual Conference Infographic Award Competition

Infographics provide an excellent platform to showcase nutrition and health concepts in an efficient, easy to interpret, creative, and colourful way.  They offer an excellent opportunity to share evidence-based information with heath care professionals working with patients, as well as to communicate directly to the public (e.g. as posters in public spaces and on social media).

The design and development of infographics is an excellent skill for students/trainees to develop.  In recognition of this, the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) will hold an Infographic Award Competition during the 2019 Annual Conference being held in Niagara Falls, ON from May 2-4, 2019.
