The XVII Latin American Congress on Nutrition was held in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic under the auspices of the Latin American Society of Nutrition (SLAN). The theme of the meeting was “Nutrition for Sustainable Development.” The inaugural Keynote Plenary Lecture was in concert with that theme, featuring Francesco Blanca, Head of the Nutrition Division of the World Health Organization in Geneva. He positioned the newly released UN Sustainable Development Goals in the context of health in general and nutrition in particular.
The program included 25 individual presenters, as well as 80 symposia; completing the platform program was a controversies debate and a series of oral communication sessions with 320 free papers. A total of 598 free-paper presentations were scheduled as posters. Within this, four of the individual formats were explicitly devoted to issues of micronutrients, whereas 11 of the symposia were micro nutrient related.
For all devoted to nutrition.
