The Current Army Program and Its Future Needs
THE PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE WORKSHOP comprise parts II through VIII. These chapters have undergone limited editorial change, have not been reviewed by an outside group, and represent the views of the individual authors. Selected questions and the speakers' responses are included at the end of most chapters and sections to provide the flavor of the workshop discussion.
Part II provides an introduction to the workshop. In Chapter 3, an overview is presented of the military nutrition program at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine. The main objectives of the program's activities are to maintain and to enhance physical and cognitive performance and overall health in all operational environments, particularly through ration enhancement and nutrition intervention. New technologies must be evaluated in terms of this research agenda.
