SCAN Symposium
Navigating the Path of Wellness

The 35th Annual Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition (SCAN) Symposium, Navigating the Path of Wellness, will be held in Phoenix, Arizona, April 26-28th, 2019. The goal of the 2019 symposium is to explore evidence-driven wellness/well-being approaches and techniques complementary to medical nutrition therapy and nutrition counseling for sports and cardiovascular nutrition to improve overall performance, health, and quality of life. The Symposium will have a strong emphasis on practical applications, skills, and knowledge that can be integrated into each of SCAN’s practice areas of sports, cardiovascular health, and wellness.
Wellness encompasses many dimensions to include: emotional, physical, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, occupational, and social aspects all of which may impact food intake, nutritional status, disease risk and performance. By integrating best practices within these different areas of wellness, the RDN will have more tools to support clients, patients, and athletes.
