CNS 2018 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 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) developed an Infographic Award Competition as a new feature launched at the 2018 Annual Conference held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from May 3-5, 2018.

I got hooked on omega-3 fats in third year University and continued to work in this area during my PhD. Throughout my graduate experience and my research, I always looked for opportunities to communicate what I was doing and why it was important. My family and friends always got an ear-full after conferences, when I wanted to share all of the new research and exciting findings. After attending an Infographics workshop at the University of Guelph, I wondered about using this tool to communicate some of the key messages from the CNS thematic conference I had just attended. Shortly after this idea, I was connected with Dr. David Ma and Dr. Robert Bertolo who helped me kick-start this initiative. I then worked closely with Dr. Shannan Grant who mentored me and taught me some of the basics involved in the creation of patient-facing and plain language communication. After all of this, voila! We have created three infographics to highlight some of the key messages from the thematic conferences. An Infographic about MetS and Nutrition (2015 CNS thematic conference) is on the way!
