Kansas Academy’s Annual Conference and Exhibits will take place April 5-7, 2018 as a joint conference with our neighbors, the Missouri Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The conference will be held at the Kansas City Marriott in Overland Park, KS. This year’s theme, “Blended Borders: Mixing Nutrition and Life” was chosen to highlight the role dietetic professionals play in inspiring Kansans to find health through the balance of nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits. The Conference Planning Committee is working hard to select speakers and topics that will provide attendees actionable solutions to help drive our profession into the Second Century.
