Fortification Workshop: New findings and implications for vitamins and minerals
ILSI North America Offices 6/21/2012 - 6/21/2012
In an environment of over-consumption, it is of great interest that Americans simultaneously fail to meet the Dietary References Intakes (DRIs) for many nutrients. Fortification is a way to supplement intakes of the population at large without having to rely on consumer choice. The Forticiation Committee's workshop will provide attendees with an improved understanding of the value of fortification and the success of current fortification efforts and practices. Additionally the workshop will address the potential future role of fortification in nutrient adequacy, which includes benefits and risks.

Energy Balance: A New Paradigm
Experimental Biology 2012, San Diego, CA 4/21/2012 - 4/21/2012
This special conference will discuss “energy balance” in terms of a biological system in which energy intake and expenditure change over time in response to one another and to the environment. The evolving scientific understanding of how the inter-components of energy balance relate to the overall weight maintenance and reduction equation in a biological system will be presented. Speakers will explore how energy balance should be studied from a methodological perspective and how a new understanding of “energy balance” might impact current strategies to prevent weight gain or enhance weight loss. A panel session at the conclusion of the special conference will discuss what research is needed to better inform our knowledge of energy balance.
