Members approve changing name of organization to the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior

Casting nearly 500 ballots with 90 percent supporting the resolution, Society for Nutrition Education (SNE) members voted in favor of changing the name of the organization to the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior.

 
PRLog - Oct. 7, 2011 - INDIANAPOLIS -- Casting nearly 500 ballots with 90 percent supporting the resolution, Society for Nutrition Education (SNE) members voted in favor of changing the name of the organization to the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior. The name change resolution was made by the Society Board of Directors based on a recommendation from the SNE Future Strategies Task Force.

“The two words ‘and Behavior’ are small,” considered Society President Brian Wansink, PhD, Cornell University, “but I believe they will prove historic for our Society.”

The change aligns the name of the 44-year-old organization with the society’s scholarly publication, the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, and will spotlight SNE’s commitment to linking its rich research base with on-the-ground practitioners to support their efforts to change behavior. The new name will be officially implemented on November 1, 2011.

“This change came about because SNE is not the society that tells people what they ought to eat, but rather the Society that changes behavior—we change how the public eats,” emphasized Wansink. “We focus on action and not just messages.”

In addition to implementing the name change, the Board will identify areas to promote greater recognition of nutrition researchers, strengthen engagement with the international members to ensure a more global perspective, and expand interactive education and cutting edge research sessions during the annual conference.
