Annual Meeting Posters


Utah Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics


The Utah Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (UAND) would like to invite Academy members in all membership categories, students, and dietetic interns to submit abstracts to be presented at the UAND Annual Meeting this coming Spring. The poster session will take place during day two of the Annual Meeting.  Dates and location of the annual meeting are found on the "Annual Meeting" tab of the UAND website.


This poster session is an opportunity to share project ideas or report research findings for use in dietetic practice. The poster session is an informal, free flowing session where authors are expected to be available for a specified 60 to 90-minute period to discuss their work with meeting attendees. Each poster area will consist of one 3 ft wide x 6 ft long table. Presenters must provide their own freestanding foam-board, cardboard, or hook-and-loop display board to mount materials.


All abstracts must be submitted on or before March 9.

Notification of your participation in the poster session will be made by March 16.
