French Nutrition Day 2019 (JFN – Journées Francophones de Nutrition)

The ISA is delighted to be participating to the French Nutrition Day (JFN – Journées Francophones de Nutrition) this year from 27th to 29th November in Rennes, France. On this occasion, the ISA will host an information booth and take the opportunity to answer your questions on low/no calorie sweeteners as well as to share ISA scientific resources for healthcare professionals which include latest research around low/no calorie sweeteners and related topics.

Visit us at the ISA booth and don’t miss the opportunity to also receive our materials developed in support for awareness days, including the latest campaign for World Diabetes Day 2019. Your feedback counts, so we also invite you to participate in our new short survey to share your scientific interests and views in relation to low/no calorie sweeteners. By filling in the survey, you will automatically enter a prize draw to win a smart watch to help you track your heart rate, sleep, activity and overall fitness level.

The JFN 2019 are taking place for the first time in Rennes, and are organised jointly by the French Nutrition Society (SFN – Société Française de Nutrition) and the Francophone Society of Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (SFNCM – Société Francophone Nutrition Clinique et Métabolisme).
