The Nourishing Health Symposium & Expo will be held March 11-12, 2020 at the Holiday Inn in Fargo, ND. 


The Nourishing Health Symposium & Expo hosted by the North Dakota Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (NDAND) will provide health practitioners, community allies and food service professionals the latest information in nutrition. This year's Symposium will feature a "quick fire" day with session times limited to 30 minutes. This will give those busy practitioners concise information to easily decide if these trendy topics are something to integrate into their practice. The second day of 'Nourishing Health' will dive deeper into nutrition topics such as: 

-The Food Matrix 

-Pediatric Failure to Thrive

-Motivation Interviewing

-Health at Every Size


-Culinary Skills for the RD

-What the Endocrinologist Wants You to Know


We have an exciting Expo planned that includes poster session viewing! Practitioners, faculty, graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts for poster presentations. The poster session will take place on Thursday, March 12. 

In addition to the conference, plan on attending the NDAND social where we look forward to spending the evening in the industrial yet beautiful setting that is Thunder Coffee in West Fargo, North Dakota. This is an evening to celebrate, socialize, and get to know some of North Dakota Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ finest. Come dressed in your business casual black and white favorites for a fun night out. This evening is packed full of some of Fargo's most delicious food and beverage vendors - Thunder Coffee cocktails and mocktails, Suna Egyptian Eatery, Duchessa Gelato, Milk Maid Catering, and Baking Smiles. We look forward to spending RDN Day with you!

This year NDAND and the North Dakota Nutrition Council (NDNC) are coordinating events to bring our annual conferences to you in consecutive days to make attending both events more convenient!
