The Nutrition Impact Summit: Participant Briefing Paper

The Nutrition Impact Summit was an invitation-only meeting that took place from September 21-23, 2016, in Dallas, Texas as part of the Academy and Foundation’s Second Century initiatives and planning. The Summit supported the three-year Second Century planning process by building collaboration across food, wellness and health care systems. At the Summit, 170 thought leaders, innovators and practitioners explored and discovered opportunities to accelerate progress toward good health and well-being for all people through collaboration across food, wellness and health care systems.

The briefing paper was created as a pre-read for participants. In this paper, we highlight successful innovations already underway and present opportunities we’ve identified to help accelerate progress toward a future of wellness for all people. As this paper makes clear, many individuals and organizations around the world have been making great strides to address malnutrition in all its forms. There is undeniable progress and growing awareness of the need for collaborative solutions in food and nutrition — for all people, whoever they are and wherever they live.
