Nutritional Risk Assessment: Bridging Perspectives, Sharing Methodologies, Identifying Data Challenges


The National Academies

2100 C Street, NW

Washington, D.C.


February 28–March 1, 2007

Objective: The workshop will serve as a forum for experts on various disciplines to:

  • discuss the strengths and challenges in using risk assessment tools to inform dietary and nutritional recommendations,

  • explore the use of risk assessment tools to evaluate standards for nutrient intake and the relationship of diet and nutrition to chronic disease risk, and

  • identify next steps necessary to advance in these areas.
