The Nutrition Seminar Program, funded by the beef checkoff, works in collaboration with state beef councils to provide leading, credentialed health and nutrition experts to speak on cutting-edge issues at state academy of nutrition and dietetics meetings, as well as other meetings and conferences whose audiences include credentialed health professionals. A wide range of topics and speakers are available and can be tailored to meet each state's needs.
