Sponsored Satellite Symposia Overview

Nutrition 2020 Sponsored Satellite Programs provide an opportunity for external groups—industry, trade organizations, government, other scientific societies, etc.—to share and discuss research findings with the nutrition science community in conjunction with American Society for Nutrition (ASN) scientific meetings. Satellite Programs provide attendees with additional educational/informational opportunities.

Sponsored Satellite Programs are not considered part of the official ASN program, and ASN does not endorse the content presented or their proceedings, publications, etc. Proposals for Non-CE/CME Satellite Programs are reviewed by ASN and criteria for acceptance include:

  • Programs must be objective and balanced.
  • Content must contribute to the field of nutrition science.
  • Programs must meet the educational needs of meeting attendees and complement the science program.
  • Program descriptions and accompanying materials must be science-based and not promotional in nature.
