IFT’s Efforts to Elevate Food, Agricultural and Natural Resources Research as a National Priority

October 31, 2016



On May 3, 2016, IFT in collaboration with the Charles Valentine Riley Memorial Foundation (RMF), Iowa State University and others convened leaders from selected professional food, nutrition, and health organizations/societies and other stakeholders such as academia and the food industry to discuss a united call for increased public investment in food, nutrition, and health research that ultimately advances public health.  The report entitled “Pursuing a Unifying Message: Elevating Food, Agricultural and Natural Resources Research as a National Priority. A Food, Nutrition and Health Perspective” summarizes a roundtable discussion with 22 leaders representing public and private research interests in food, nutrition, and health.  This roundtable is part of RMF’s larger effort aimed at pursuing a unifying message to elevate food, agricultural and natural resources research as a national priority.
