    The ADA Foundation is currently accepting proposals for the Wimpfheimer-Guggenheim International Lecture taking place at FNCE in Boston, Massachusetts, November 6 to 9, 2010. The focus of the lecture is to raise the nutritional health of the world community by highlighting original international projects in food and nutrition, dietetic education, research and foodservice management. Practical application of innovative, creative or novel yet feasible solutions to local problems that can be applied in a variety of settings will be strongly considered, especially in developing countries. The lecture may also focus on work that international not-for-profit organizations are doing to improve the nutritional health of the world community. Registered dietitians (or International Equivalent) nutritionists, health professionals, officers of international health organizations or government agencies promoting partnership for improving global nutrition and universal well-being are eligible to be selected for the lecture. To be considered as a lecturer, please complete the proposal located on the ADAF website, www.adaf.org, and provide a CV/résumé for a potential lecturer, lecturers or panel of lecturers.
