Nutritional Medicine and Challenges of the 21st Century...

Watch Conference 2015 highlights

The Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) is proud to announce the 6th International Science of Nutrition in Medicine and Healthcare Conference, to be held on 31 April and 1 May 2016 at the Sofitel Wentworth Sydney, Australia.

Once again, the Food and Nutrition Flagship of CSIRO, and the Nutrition Society of Australia (NSA) are collaborating with ACNEM to present this event.

This unique and world-class international meeting brings together the medical, nutrition and scientific communities to explore the clinical application of the latest research and new concepts in nutritional, genetic and genomic science.  The first five conferences were each a sell-out success with an average of 400 delegates in attendance.

An impressive line-up of world experts, along with key public health, political and industry figures will be present to explore the conference themes and their inter-relationship.

We extend a warm invitation for you to join us at what will again be an informative, intellectually challenging and clinically significant event.
