Oregon Nutrition Update 2019

Thursday April 18, 2019; 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Alumni Center, Oregon State University

We are excited to announce that the OHSU Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness and the OSU Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition & Preventive Health have joined forces to combine our annual nutrition conferences.

We have renamed the Food, Nutrition and Health Update conference to “Oregon Nutrition Update”, and will alternate locations between Portland and Corvallis. In 2019, the conference will be held in Corvallis.

Working together, we will be able to amplify our common message about the important role nutrition plays in the health of Oregon communities. We hope you are as excited about the possibilities of this collaboration as we are!
