Wednesday, October 18
Physical Activity & Health: New Knowledge in Research & Technologies will explore the latest research on health benefits of physical activity, with a focus on new and innovative technologies that both promote physical activity and provide better methods for data collection and analysis.

Advancement of Global Food Composition Databases will present an overview of food composition databases around the world and will include case studies on new developments in strengthening these food composition databases to improve the quality of dietary assessment surveys
Thursday, October 19
Sodium Reduction & Considerations with Mineral Intakes will focus on challenges and opportunities in sodium reduction within the nutrition and public health communities.

Understanding Dietary Patterns: A Step toward Devising a Global Nutrition Strategy will focus on existing and new strategies for providing health guidance, with the aim of devising a global nutrition strategy. Speakers will explore the biology and culture of food choice, how food systems affect dietary patterns, and the strength of existing methods and data.
