How to participate?
Step 1: Register online. You will be sent an email with the presentation links after you complete your registration.
Please note it is not an automatic email message; links will be sent to all registered participants when the course materials are available. Participants who register after the presentations are available will receive an email from program organizers within 48 hours after registration.
Step 2: View the online presentations beginning March 15, 2013. (Presentations will be available indefinitely, or until the material is no longer relevant.)
Step 3: View the live Q/A Session on May 2, 2013 from 12:00-1:30pm CDT.

Who organizes the program? The Current Issues in Nutrition conference is organized by Iowa State University Extension and the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition. As a leading research institution, Iowa State University understands the need professionals have for educational update opportunities focused on timely issues.

Why the new format? In 2009, the planning committee began a new format for Current Issues in Nutrition - a series of archived presentations and a live Q/A session. The subsequent programs have been well received by participants and allows us to bring you quality educational information at a lesser cost than the traditional satellite program of the past. The planning committee is still testing this new format, but likely will provide a program twice annually. Be sure to check back to this website for information about future programs.

The web-based presentations and Q/A sessions allow registrants to participate from their own computers. This reduces travel costs for participation. In addition, online technology is considerably more cost efficient. This means the registration fee is actually less this year for the same great quality, science-based information.

What's a webcast? Using new technology, Iowa State University is able to provide you featured speaker content from the comfort of your own home or office. Adobe ConnectTM software gives participants online access to live video, audio and presentations as well as interaction with other participants and presenters via chatroom technology. Webcasts are a convenient and cost-effective way to attend a seminar without the hassle and expense of travelling to a central site. Adobe ConnectTM software is a free web-based software; you do not need to purchase software in order to participate.

Are there any system requirements for my computer? Both the presentations and the live Q&A session use Flash technology. To ensure you have Flash loaded on your computer and can participate in the live Q&A session, go to www.extension.iastate.edu/testconnect/. No other software or hardware is required; it is a web-based program. You must also ensure you have working audio on your computer.

Is there a group rate? There is no group rate for CIN. Each individual must register in order to receive a CEU certificate.
