Johns Hopkins Symposium: Hopkins Nutrition 2018, Celebrating a Century of Nutritional Discovery for Public Health

The Center for Human Nutrition, which based in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School’s Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Department of International Health, is hosting a symposium, “Century of Nutritional Discovery for Public Health,” on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

The event commemorates the publication of the first edition, in 1918, of Dr. Elmer V. McCollum’s “The Newer Knowledge of Nutrition,” America’s first modern textbook in nutritional science. Dr. McCollum served as first professor in nutrition at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.  Over the century, the School has established a legacy of leadership, discovery and action to advance public health nutrition.

The program will explore the origins, discoveries, leadership, current frontiers and vision in this critical domain of public health.
