AIARD’s 54th Annual Conference “Business Un’Usual: Aligning Critical Intersections of Agriculture, Health and Food” was held in June in Washington DC.
The conference was dedicated to the exploration of technical interventions with cultural factors, behavior change communication, and the key role of policy development both in the U.S. and abroad. See the full agenda and Pdf versions of the conference presentations here.
We had some very interesting and lively discussions that allowed the conference participants to share their experiences and engage in a dialogue with the speakers and colleagues. Some discussions continued beyond the sessions well into networking breaks. You can find conference pictures in the photo gallery. You are also welcome to submit your pictures to be added to it!
We hope that our 54th conference enabled the attendees to develop a sound understanding of how more coordinated actions across the system can result in improved nutrition and health. You can find student participants’ reflections from the PennState University in the INTAD’s Program blogs: "What's the Value of AIARD" and "AIARD Wrap Up from a Student Perspective".
We would also like to welcome you and take a look at the profiles of our 2018 Future Leaders Forum participants and 2018 AIARD Award Recipients.
Thank you again to all participants and sponsors!
