Description

The Princess Chulabhorn International Science Congress conference series is an important platform for continuing the coordination of US and Southeast Asian stakeholder expertise directed at multiple facets of environmental health. The University of Kentucky Superfund Research Center (UK-SRC), led by Dr. Bernhard Hennig, proposes to partner with other Superfund Research Centers to develop and implement a special focus nutrition session within this conference program. Conference dates are November 13-17, 2016, at the Shangri-La Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. The overarching objective of the proposed special focus nutrition session is to facilitate scientific exchange within an emerging prevention paradigm, better define the complex but common links between health and environment particularly within Southeast Asian countries, and enable use of shared understandings of current research. The conference objectives of this special nutrition session will be accomplished by inviting five session speakers, from the US and Southeast Asian nations, to participate. In addition to the oral presentations, a poster session with a similar nutrition focus will maximize the interactions students and trainees have with more established scientists and stakeholders.
