Chan Theary addresses the International Congress of Nutrition
The International Union of Nutritional Sciences (IUNS) aims to "promote advancement in nutrition science, research, and development through international cooperation at the global level and to encourage communication and collaboration among nutrition scientists as well as to disseminate information in nutritional sciences through modern communication technology".
IUNS hosted the 20th annual International Congress of Nutrition in Granada Spain, from 15-20 September, 2013. The congress brought together representatives from countries across the globe, and aimed to "join different cultures, traditions, and knowledge through...nutritional development". The Congress was organized by the Spanish Nutrition Society, and representatives from Vietnam, China, the Philippines, and Cambodia were asked to share their experience from scientific research and implementation in their home countries before an international audience and thousands of nutrition experts.
Chan Theary, RACHA's executive director, was invited to speak at the Congress and RACHA was honored to send her as our representative. She presented the topic "Cambodia: Iron-fortified Fish Sauce - Progress and Development" during the Parallel Symposium Session PS5-61 Micronutrient Fortification: Science and Strategies for Public Health Improvement in Asia. RACHA's presentation of the abstract on Iron Fortification of Fish and Soy Sauce project was well received by those attending the conference.
