More than 1,000 abstracts were submitted by students and postdoctoral fellows and the competition aims to recognize the top 20% highest scoring abstracts as finalists. Abstracts were rated by more than 200 nutrition scientists.
Moss and Houdek will be presenting their abstracts, “Components of a Mediterranean Diet are Associated with Gut Permeability in Obese Adults,” and, “Dietary Inflammatory Index Scores and C-Reactive Protein Concentrations among Older Adults,” respectively.
Grand prize winners in more than 16 topical categories will be identified and receive travel awards. Congratulations to our students!
