Conference: "The Role of Nutrition in Minority Health Disparities"

(August 28, 2003) The UC Davis/ Children’s Hospital of Oakland Research Institute (CHORI) Minority Health Disparities Center for Nutritional Genomics will be presenting a one day conference on “The Role of Nutrition in Minority Health Disparities” on Thursday, August 28, 2003. The conference will be held in the library at CHORI, which is located at 5700 Martin Luther King Jr. Way Oakland CA 94609.

This is the first in a series of annual conferences focusing on reducing health disparities through a better understanding of the interplay between nutrition and the human genome. The keynote speaker for this conference is Walter Willet, M.D., Dr. P.H., professor and chair of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health. Topics to be covered include: rethinking the food pyramid, the role of vitamins and minerals in promoting health and preventing birth defects; obesity and Type 2 Diabetes in minority populations, and the importance of exercise intervention in preventing chronic disease.

Because seating for the conference is limited, registration is required to reserve a seat. You may request seating for the morning or afternoon sessions or both. There is no fee for the conference, and lunch will be provided.

The schedule of speakers and a link to the registration form can be found on the Center’s website http://nutrigenomics.ucdavis.edu/ near the bottom of the homepage.
