Since 2010, Oldways has been leading the charge in working with supermarket dietitians by creating an exciting and educational annual event to connect retail dietitians with food companies committed to improving public health. Coordinated with Barbara Ruhs, MS, RD, LDN, the symposium recognizes the important work retail dietitians do and looks toward the future to find practical, real solutions to improve the health of all Americans.

Our 2016 symposium was held March 220-22 at the Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans, Louisiana

If you would like to attend or sponsor our 2017 event, please contact Georgia Orcutt.
