Women’s Health: Optimal Nutrition Throughout the Lifecycle

In 2021, CRN-I, in response to survey responses from Codex delegates, will focus on women’s health by exploring unique nutritional needs, challenges, and opportunities at key life stages. Established and emerging nutritional interventions can impact the trajectory of the healthspan in women. From infancy and early childhood, to pregnancy and lactation, and beyond post-menopause, women’s life stages present opportunities to enhance wellbeing across populations in both developed and developing countries. Emphasizing a need for science-based policy-making, we’ve gathered international experts to share insights from recent research. Join us for our 2021 fall webinar series.
