GC Nutrition Council Annual Meeting

Members attending the GCNC meeting in October.

Silver Spring | General Conference--Nutritionists and some division Health Directors from around the world met on October 17-19, 2017 for the annual meeting of the General Conference Nutrition Council (GCNC) in Silver Spring, MD.  Chaired by Dr. Fred Hardinge, Associate Health Ministries Director and a dietitian himself, the group of highly qualified nutritionists aims at advising the church on nutrition and health related matters. At the meeting, many nutritional issues related to the church ministry were discussed, such as nutrition misinformation, Vitamin B12, various aspects of vegetarian nutrition, and how to achieve a balanced nutrition philosophy. If you or your church have a nutrition related question that you can’t find an answer to, you are welcome to ask your Conference or Union Health Ministries Director to pass it on to the GCNC for careful consideration.
