The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN; Washington DC) announced that registration is now open for its annual industry-wide education and networking events, The Workshop: CRN’s Day of Science, a full-day symposium on scientific topics about nutrition and dietary supplements, and The Conference: CRN’s Annual Symposium for the Dietary Supplement Industry. The Workshop will take place on October 16, while The Conference will be held from October 16-19. Both events will take place at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, in Dana Point, CA.
One of the notable changes to this year’s conference schedule, which was made in response to attendee feedback, is the “Breakfast with…” session. This year’s session will now take place on Friday, instead of on Saturday, and will feature presidential historian Jon Meecham, a Pulitzer Prize winner and contributor to TIME and The New York Times Book Review.
Scientist Dean Ornish, MD, founder and president of Preventive Medicine Research Institute, will speak on Thursday, Oct. 18. CRN says that additional speakers and sessions will be announced on the organization’s event page, which can be accessed here.
Meanwhile, The Workshop will cover such topics as “Nutritional Needs during Pregnancy and the First Two Years,” “The Microbiome’s Impact on Human Health,” and “Impact of Sleep on Human Health and Disease,” all presented by noted research scientists and university professors.
“CRN’s events are known for thought-provoking speakers and discussions that drive change, industry-wide,” said Steve Mister, president, CEO, CRN, in a press release. “We invite dietary supplement and functional food industry stakeholders-both CRN members and non-members-to join us in October, see what changes are afoot, and be part of that evolution.”
Interested parties have four flexible registration options, says CRN. Those options include The Workshop/The Conference package; The Workshop only; The Conference only; and The Workshop and first day of The Conference. CRN also notes that attendees must first register for CRN’s events to be eligible for accommodations in CRN’s room block at the Ritz-Carlton. And, as hotel rooms are likely to fill quickly, CRN recommends that attendees book accommodations promptly, once registered for the events.
