Update for Sep 20, 2022 - White House Conference September 28

from Ehrens Consulting

The North Dakota Public Health Association (NDPHA) Nutrition Section and the North Dakota Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics (NDAND) are excited to offer a joint watch party during the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health (WHC) on Wednesday, September 28th. The WHC is being streamed online live, and the watch party is being offered through access to a Zoom “room” (connection). You may need up to 2 devices to take part in both at the same time. The Zoom Room will be open all day during the hours of the WHC; you can use the Chat Box function to comment or share ideas and impressions. You may want to drop in during the scheduled hours of break in the WHC agenda, which is from 11:00 a.m - 12:30 p.m.CT for a more interactive discussion.

It’s been more than 50 years since the first and only White House Conference on Food, Nutrition, and Health was held in 1969. That pivotal event helped galvanize actions that included the creation of life changing programs like school lunches, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and changes to how we label foods.

The 2022 White House Conference will catalyze the public and private sectors around a coordinated strategy to accelerate progress and drive transformative change in the U.S. to end hunger, improve nutrition and physical activity, and close the disparities surrounding them. Please visit the Conference website to register to retrieve your live stream link, view the agenda, and learn more the WHC background and details.

The NDPHA, NDAND, and other like-minded organizations and their members are invited to our interactive Zoom watch party, which we will run simultaneously with the Conference live stream. The Zoom meeting room will be open all day (8 a.m. - 5 p.m. CST), and we encourage participation even if you are unable to join for the entirety of the event. According to the draft agenda, there will be a long break from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CST, and we anticipate a time for discussion for those joining the Zoom event, plus the opportunity to share comments and links in the “chat box” throughout the day.

We look forward to seeing you on the 28th!
