Agriculture & Food Systems Institute staff presented at the Nutrition Impact Summit, organized by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The Summit brought together an extraordinary group of diverse leaders for a rare opportunity to spend three days focusing on collaborative action, with this central question driving our work: How might we accelerate progress toward good health and wellbeing for all people through collaboration across food, wellness and health care systems?  The Summit provided an opportunity for participants to make new connections, strengthen relationships with peers, share ideas for innovation across different parts of the system and find new ways to work together.
