2019 Winners

Shahwar Latif, MS, RD, LD, CSO

This NNM event was advertised for several weeks over the greater Kansas City, Missouri area. My presentation took place at the ICJC Learning Center on April 13, 2019. The venue was set up for a nutrition talk on Cancer and Chronic Disease Prevention. There were posters displayed on multiple walls within the room and they provided detailed information related to my talk which included information on plant-based foods, portion control, meat as well as sugar and fat. There were 24 people in attendance and the presentation was about 30 minutes. It was followed by a meaningful and interesting session of questions and discussion for another 30 minutes. The event concluded with healthful refreshments, including Chana chat (made with garbanzo beans), hummus with colorful vegetables, fruit and nuts along with hot tea. Audience members were appreciative of the information provided to them during this event.
