It is our pleasure to invite you to the first major international meeting of the International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research, to be held in Bethesda, USA, between the 30th of July and 2nd of August 2017 at the Marriot Hotel in the centre of Bethesda – a short train ride from central Washington D.C.
The ISNPR conference will comprise:
- Plenary presentations from leading international researchers
- State of the art symposia and free oral presentations from researchers and clinicians
- Multidisciplinary workshops for psychiatrists, psychologists, dietitians and other health professionals
- An exciting social program
This meeting will reflect the broad spectrum of research, from the sub-cellular to translation and implementation science. The program will cater to the interests of researchers and clinicians from the fields of public health, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and dietetics, as well as psychiatry and psychology. There will also be a strong focus on basic science and the biological processes and factors that underpin the links between diet, nutrition and mental health, including the brain-gut-microbe axis, immunology and metabolic processes and molecular science.
An important aspect of the ISNPR conference will be the workshops, which will offer training from skilled and highly experienced psychiatrists and dietitians. These workshops will focus on the practical aspects of nutrition and clinical care for those with mental disorders.
We look forward to welcoming you to Bethesda for what promises to be a highly stimulating program that also offers important opportunities for networking, professional training and collaboration.
