Food for Your Whole Life Returns to NYC in June

A major health symposium that we told you about back in 2010 is back by popular demand, and it’s continuing the important mission it started two years ago. It’s the Food for Your Whole Life Health Symposium, and it’s bringing some of the best minds in health and nutrition together to educate the public and professionals in the field about food and lifestyle choices that are essential for better health. This year, Food for Your Whole Life will convene at the Hilton in New York City on June 3rd and 4th, promising attendees the tools they need to “improve our nation’s health and be empowered knowing that nutritious food is tasty and delicious and an exciting and flavorful way to improve your health.”

The crowd-drawing presenters that wowed in 2010 return as well, including Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of “The Dr. Oz Show”, Dr. Michael F. Roizen, author of the best-selling YOU series, which he co-authored with Dr. Oz, and regular on-air personality Dr. David L. Katz. They will be joined by other internationally-recognized researchers, clinicians, educators and health experts who will present nutrition tips for achieving optimal health as well as their own new research and theories on nutrition. (If you are thinking of attending, you can get a taste of the 2010 event by browsing the live blog from 2010 courtesy of Don’t (White) Sugar Coat It.)

Understanding the Effect of Food on Health

Those in the healthcare field, including physicians, dieticians, nurses, and educators will attend the Food for Your Whole Life Health Symposium to share information that will support the clients and patients they see in their practice and learn about philosophies that are relevant for today’s attitudes about nutrition and health. This year’s event specifically focuses on the aged-based diet, including food-based dietary patterns for the general population and specific groups.

While the first half of the Symposium is targeted to health professionals, Sunday, June 3 events are open to the public. They will include presentations by Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen, exhibits, cooking demos, exercise sessions and BMI testing. It’s a perfect opportunity for anyone, whether you serve others or just serve yourself and your family, to learn more about improving health through nutrition.
