Food for Health Workshop

International Partnerships to Align Health Agendas and Research

Workshop Objectives:
The 2016 Food for Health Workshop builds on a series of workshops to enhance the health of Canadians by better understanding the challenges and opportunities across the continuum from the producer to processor, manufacturer, retailer, researcher, healthcare professional, government to consumer. The 2016 workshop specifically builds on last year's Knowledge Translation in Public Private Partnerships (PPP) workshop and how PPP can be effective for knowledge creation and translation. This year we will examine how international PPP spanning multiple countries and sectors can (1) align food, nutrition and agriculture research agendas, (2) encourage greater collaboration in research on the impact of diet and lifestyle on health and its connection with agriculture, and (3) support a culture of international collaborations and alignment in support of the Food for Health agenda and translation of that research. Join us for a thorough examination of the issues and how to take knowledge to action and education as shared by opinion leaders, industry and non-governmental agencies.
