About Food for Health

The Food for Health Workshop is an annual pre-conference event of the Canadian Nutrition Society Annual Conference.  The workshop aims to bring together representatives from across the nutrition spectrum to engage in solutions and actions that aim to improve the health of Canadians.  Workshops have focused on issues related to building productive collaborations and partnerships, tackling regulatory issues, addressing conflict of interest barriers, exploring behavioural economics, and aligning health and research agendas. Typical workshop attendees include representatives from research and academia, food and agriculture industries (including developers, producers, manufacturers and distributors), government and health care providers. 

The Food for Health Workshop is presented thanks to a collaboration between the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) and the International Life Sciences Institute – ILSI North America, along with other invited partners from year to year. Summary reports are available to all and presentations are available to members.
