Joint ENLP/SEANLP/ANLP Nutrition Leadership Training

Date and Time: : 4 October 2009 FROM 09.00 – 16.00 hrs.

TENTATIVE PROGRAM

9.00 - 9:30 Welcome
9:30 – 12:30 
Training session 1 (Ted Baartmans)

“Conflict management in different cultural setting”


Conflict management is all about creating dialog. Instead of asking what people want, you have to find out why people want something. Questioning your opponent in depth to find common ground will help you solve the conflict in a satisfactory way for all parties. In the session the theory behind this will be explained and be practiced with a role play.
12:30 – 14:00 Lunch
14:00 – 15:30 
Training session 2 (Inggita Notosusanto)

"Campaign for a Better World"


Campaign for a Better World (CBW) is a 90-minute course on communications for individuals who require excellent communication skills as part of their professional careers. Through a series of case studies and group exercises CBW aims to build awareness of the importance of communications, and to build the confidence of non-profit leaders in carrying out communication programs. A survey of communication activities that the participants can utilize will be explored and new ideas will be captured with tools such as the "Communication Wheel". Participants are facilitated to develop sensitivity in identifying opportunities in connecting with their key stakeholders, and to be equipped with skills to act upon those opportunities. Participants will have access to the CBW presentation which they can share and explore further with their teams.

Fundamentals of Nutrigenomics and Its Applications

Date and Time: October 4, 2009 at 09.00 – 16.30 Hr
Venue: BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand

Organizer:
International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) South East Asia Region

Co-organizer:
Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO)

Session description:
Nutrigenomics is a field of study that examines how the interaction between genetics and nutrition affects human health. Studying nutrigenomics helps us to understand the reasons and mechanisms of why individuals may respond differently to the same diet and brings us closer to the goal of achieving personalized nutrition. As nutrigenomics contains considerable technical jargon not readily understood, introduction to this field is important to practising nutritionists and dietitians to gain a good understanding and appreciation of what it is. The session will include presentations as well as case studies in workshop format.

Purpose:
1. Introduce basic concepts of nutrigenomics and technology involved
2. Share applications of nutrigenomics in health optimization, disease treatment and prevention
3. Equip participants with basic skills on how to read, understand and interpret nutrigenomics research
4. Discuss the potential of how nutrigenomics may potentially transform nutrition and dietetics practice and its implications

Scientific Chair and Co-chair:
Prof Michael Fenech, CSIRO, Australia
Prof John Milner, National Institute of Health, USA

HEALTH BENEFITS OF TREE NUTS

Date and Time: October 4, 2009, from 1.00 – 5.00 PM

ORGANIZED BY:
• The International Nut and Dried Fruit Council Foundation (INC, formerly known as the International Tree Nut Council), which is located in Reus, Spain and represents members in over 50 countries and all sectors of the dried fruit and tree nut production and trade of almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, peanuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts.
• The INC Nutrition Research & Education Foundation (INC NREF), located in Davis, California, which is responsible for funding nutrition research on tree nuts as well as developing educational and outreach materials for health professionals, media and consumers.

SESSION DESCRIPTION:
Research over the last decade has focused primarily on nuts and heart disease resulting in the 2003 U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved qualified health claim: “Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.” In recent years other research areas have emerged as experts examine the effects of nuts on diabetes, satiety and maintenance of healthy body weight, and cancer prevention. This session will include a review of the nutritional composition of tree nuts as well as an update on the growing body of research on nuts and health.

Nutritional aspects of traditional foods and their health implications

Date and Time: 4 October 2009 from 13.00 – 16.00 hrs.
Venue: To be advised

SESSION DESCRIPTION
Traditional foods are an integral part of the dietary patterns world-wide and there is a need to investigate them in order to elucidate their role in these diets. There is also a need to study traditional foods with a view to enrich and, possibly, improve our diet and at the same time preserve important elements of our cultural inheritance.

Many traditional foods are said to have beneficial health effects but others may contain too much salt, animal fat or smoked foods. It is important to characterize them, so that those that are health promoting or, at least, innocuous retain their position in our diets and contribute to our cultural diversity and culinary richness.

The pre-conference workshop will have duration of 2.5 hours. Introductory presentations of 15 minutes by each participant will outline the topic and discussion will follow

PURPOSE
The workshop will contribute, in a multi-faceted way, to the elucidation of the role of traditional foods in contemporary societies.

Recent Advances in Bioavailability and Bioefficacy Methodology

Date and Time: 4 October 2009, 2:00 - 4:00 pm
Venue: MR 223, BITEC

Session Background and Objective:
It is important to know not only the chemical composition (nutrient content) but also the bioavailability and bioefficacy of individual nutrients and bioactive components in foods. Methods have been developed for use in vitro and at the cellular, tissue and whole-body levels in animal models and in humans. Current techniques have given us much greater information on availability of nutrients from foods and more knowledge about impact of food matrices on the uptake of these nutrients. What are the challenges and problems remaining? This satellite meeting is intended to familarize participants with methods for assessing bioavailability and bioefficacy of individual nutrients in foods and with the strengths and weaknesses of the methods involved.

The session is intended to provide a guide to interpretation and extension of current progress in this field, from molecular to whole-body approaches, considering the strengths and weaknesses of each.
