Global Capacity Building in Nutrition Science: Training Future Practitioners, Empowering Future Leaders

Global Capacity Building in Nutrition Science: Training Future Practitioners, Empowering Future Leaders

Thursday, May 31, 2012 - Friday, June 1, 2012

The New York Academy of Sciences

Building capacity in nutrition science is fundamental at all levels and across multiple dimensions: from basic scientific research to policy making, from program design to program implementation and evaluation, and from individual nutrition counseling skills to management and leadership skills. Nutrition issues are often placed at the crossroads of several disciplines, and lack of capacity in initiating and leading multi-sectoral interactions leads to missed opportunities to address nutrition problems.

Where do we stand in terms of the capacity of the current and future generations of nutrition and public health practitioners in addressing the double burden of malnutrition? What are the obstacles to adequate capacity building and how can they be overcome?

This conference will bring together leading experts from academia, industry, and the non-profit sector to review the state of educational and professional trainings available in the nutrition domain, and to discuss novel ideas and methods for filling future gaps.

Capacity Building in Nutrition Science: Asia Reflection and Future Challenges
Emorn Wasantwisut, PhD, Institute of Nutrition, Mahidol University

The continent of Asia emerged from high burden of protein-energy malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies to a region in transition. The severity of under-nutrition in mothers and young children markedly declined over the years while obesity and non-communicable diseases increased rapidly, leading to the scenario of double-burden of malnutrition. The capacity in nutrition science in the early years was built primarily within the medical/health sciences and public health related professionals. In the 1960s and ‘70s, individual training, fellowships and scholarships resulted in a group of nutrition leaders who pioneered the efforts to tackle the regional nutrition problems at the time. During early 1980s, the major funding for capacity development in nutrition diminished and several programs phased out. Short-course trainings and workshops were coupled onto research or program-based activities. This vacuum period and a gap of leadership generation led to the decline of several institutions and became the basis for ‘Manila Forum’ organized by UNU in 1996 to review and re-strategize the manpower development plan in nutrition. In 2002, the United Nations System Standing Committee on Nutrition (SCN) established a Working Group on Capacity Strengthening in Nutrition in Asia (CASNA) to develop a strategic plan and provide guidance for implementation including monitoring and evaluation scheme, under the umbrella of the UNU-Food and Nutrition Program. CASNA Task Force identified core areas for research and training together with the implementing model of grouping trainer and trainee institutions with common interests. Unfortunately, a number of constraints led to a stall on CASNA strategy. Recently, the increasing recognition that to effectively solve nutrition problems, the knowledge in nutrition science should be generated based on local context, resulted in the Government model of research centers of excellence (e.g. China, Singapore) with potentials to become a regional resource base. To address the complexities of malnutrition in Asia, the forthcoming generation of nutrition scientists is expected to possess in-depth knowledge with application to policy and program, as well as conquer the skills of leadership; advocacy; team-building; communication across disciplines etc.

Capacity Building in Basic Nutritional Sciences in Eastern Africa:  A Consortium-Based Approach
Debra J. Wolgemuth, PhD, The Institute of Human Nutrition, Columbia University Medical Center

Developing countries suffer severely from a lack of human resources in science, technology, and the biomedical sciences. Africa in particular has a crisis, with many countries experiencing chronic shortages of biomedical engineers, medical and research laboratory technicians, medical doctors and basic scientists. We at the Institute of Human Nutrition suggest that there is immediate and compelling need for education and training of scientists who could then build and sustain state of the art laboratory approaches to nutrition-related problems in Eastern Africa. Building capacities in laboratory based nutritional sciences is vital from a public health perspective and will be a key contributor to strengthening the interfaces of economical growth and agricultural development. Laboratory-based PhD level training in most of sub-Saharan Africa has been hindered by the lack of facilities and faculty to compete with international standards of excellence [see Nature 474: cover; 542-543; 555-573 (2011), wherein 21 pages and the cover feature are focused on this major gap at several levels]. Because of these limitations, many students from Africa leave to go to international institutes for graduate and professional training and do not return to their home countries. Local mechanisms for training individuals at the graduate level to sustain and expand such facilities and programs are lacking. The economic benefits of better nutrition and health are often underappreciated by government leaders in many African nations. To this end, we further suggest that it will be critical to engage the ministries of the participating institutions’ respective countries toward the goal of advancing education in the area of nutritional sciences. As an approach to capacity building, we are developing a PhD level training program in basic nutritional sciences using a consortium-based model that is multi-institutional, Africa-based, and Africa-led. The consortium would be led by a team of investigators and educators who are internationally recognized for their successes and experience in nutritional and related basic sciences and who would work closely with the faculty at the participating institutions. The concept of forming an African consortium to accomplish such goals has already been tested in other, complementary disciplines and will be discussed.

Online Professional Development: Opportunities and Challenges
Christina M. Stark, MS, RD, CDN, Cornell NutritionWorks

This presentation will examine the opportunities and challenges of building capacity in nutrition using an online professional development program called Cornell NutritionWorks. The program, developed by faculty in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University, provides continuing education opportunities to over 9,500 community-based practitioners in 115 countries worldwide. Offerings include single seminars on a variety of nutrition and global health issues, multi-unit trainings on topics such as "Food Policy in Developing Countries" and "Programming for Infant and Young Child Feeding," and an in-depth facilitated course on "Preventing Childhood Obesity: An Ecological Approach." Overall, an online platform can be an efficient and effective way to build capacity, but requires significant resources to develop and maintain.

Danone: Global Support for Future Leaders in Nutrition
Gayle Binney, Dannon Institute, The Dannon Company, Inc.

Danone, a multinational food and beverage corporation, has supported initiatives around the world related to the development of future leaders in nutrition. This presentation will demonstrate how Danone has supported capacity building initiatives in nutrition and health around the world and how this relates to Danone's mission of health through food. Programs supported by Danone include the European Nutrition Leadership Program (1993 – Present), French-Speaking African Nutrition Leadership Program (2008 – Present), and, through the Dannon Institute, the Nutrition Leadership Institute for North America (1998 – Present).

Nutrition Education: The Whys, Whats and Hows of Effectively Changing Eating Behaviors
Pamela A. Koch, EdD, RD, Center for Food & Environment, Teachers College Columbia University

For nutrition education to effectively change eating behavior, curriculum and program developers and researchers need to use the appropriate psychosocial theories in order to: motivate people in personally relevant ways, teach the knowledge and skills needed to do the desired behavior, teach self-regulation processes that enable people to initiate and maintain behavior change, and create environments that are supportive of healthful behaviors. This presentation will explain Dr. Isobel Contento’sDESIGN Model for Planning Theory-Based Nutrition Education. DESIGN stands for: Decide Issues, Audience and Behaviors; Explore Determinants or Mediators; Select Theory, Philosophy, and Components; Indicate Objectives; Generate Plans; and Nail Down Evaluation. As Pam reviews these steps, she will incorporate in examples from curriculum programs she has developed and evaluated.

Prospectives from the Field
Hunter Reed, F.A.S.T.NYC

This presentation will give a field perspective on delivering health and nutrition education to the public - primarily the young public in NYC public schools who are facing Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes at epic proportions. We will examine the impact of the lack of professional development for principals, teachers and kitchen staff in NYC public schools, in the areas of Nutrition Education and Physical Education, and its effects on childhood obesity and its related diseases. A second topic covered will be the lack of compliance by the Department of Education with the State's Physical Education Regulations in public schools. This lack of compliance has created a critical need for organizations like fastnyc to educate school populations on the importance of regular physical activity and proper nutrition, while simultaneously implementing programs that coincide with the CDC’s School Health Guidelines.
