Nutrition 2019 featured more than 100 sessions covering 6 tracks offering the latest science from the many disciplines of nutrition, including basic science, clinical and translational nutrition, global and public health, psychology, environment, technology, and more.


In June, nearly 3500 people gathered in Baltimore to advance their nutrition knowledge with 20 featured sessions, 2000 presentations of new original research, 5 award lectures, numerous workshops, interactive exhibits, alumni events, career development activities, networking opportunities, and the HUB expo hall.


"Nutrition 2019 offered great minds, timely topics, and excellent science," said Catherine Field, PhD, RD, American Society for Nutrition (ASN) president. "The discussions among the top scientific researchers, practitioners, global and public health professionals, policy makers and advocacy leaders, industry, and media assembled over these 4 days will prove to make significant contributions to the future of nutrition science."


Hot topics included nutritional microbiology, big data analytics, nutrition-related health effects of cannabis, animal protein sources, meal timing and circadian rhythms, omics in nutrition, delivery of micronutrients to populations, and much more.


New to the annual event was an opportunity to network with representatives from government nutrition research programs at the "Connect With the Feds" activities.


Dietitians must complete the conference evaluation at to earn continuing education credit.


Audio and select presentations from the meeting are available on ASN on Demand at Visit the American Society for Nutrition's YouTube channel for video highlights.
