2020 Fall Webinar Series—now on demand

 

Globally longevity has been increasing, however not only do inequalities remain, but more importantly, real and perceived “health” has not always kept pace.  If we live longer but are suffering extensive and extended morbidities, as well as depressed mental, physical, and social  status, then should a long life measured by number of years, months and days be the only goal?  Since 2010, CRN-I has sponsored and organized annual scientific symposia at the Codex CCNFSDU meeting to provide current scientific thinking, academic research, and public health policy considerations, complimentary for national delegates.  This year, our three virtual webinars will examine healthy ageing and health promotion throughout the life-course, targeted nutritional elements that are backed by scientific research, and several well-studied bioactive constituents that may eventually be recognized for their public health promoting opportunities. Please join us by registering to virtually attend one or all of the “Science-based Policy: Targeted Nutrition for All Ages and the Role of Bioactives” webinars.
