The Ohio Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Annual Conference, May 11, 2018 at the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel, is the premier conference for food and nutrition professionals in Ohio.

Speaker RFP Overview

OAND is requesting proposals for educational sessions that focus upon this year's theme "Serving Our State."  The sessions should explore various populations, based upon economic, generational, life-cycle, or health/disease status, and their respective nutritional needs and challenges.  The following classifications of sessions are highly encouraged:

1. Lectures based upon scientific, nutrition research in specific populations.
2. Presentations on novel approaches, tools, products, foodservice models, and educational programming that are currently being utilized or have potential to be utilized in Ohio.
3. Large group workshops on communication, micronutrient deficiency, malnutrition, or culinary skills development.

If you are a polished speaker with new research-based content to share with our attendees—who has not presented at our conference the past two years—please consider submitting a proposal. All proposals must be submitted online, and must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 13, 2017.  No e-mailed proposals will be accepted this year.
