Current Technologies in Diet Assessment & Intervention
Carol J. Boushey, PhD, MPH, RD, University of Hawaii
Tech Summit: Innovative Tools for Assessing Diet &
Physical Activity for Health Promotion
Wednesday & Thursday, 30 November & 1 December 2016
Atkinson Hall, University of California, San Diego
This unique forum will investigate current and emerging challenges related to improving energy balance behavior assessment and intervention via technology, and will focus on how the research community might embrace and apply innovative new tools.
ILSI North America Committee on Balancing Food & Activity for Health

with programmatic input from NIH and USDA-ARS
Dietary intake and physical activity are the key determinants of energy balance. Understanding this delicate balance has long been a challenge for researchers. Technological advances are improving our ability to collect data on dietary intake and physical activity. The summit will address these advances, focusing on how current and new technologies are being implemented to improve and maintain positive health outcomes while also addressing challenges and limitations. In addition to discussing how modifiable determinants of energy balance can be better measured through new technology, the summit also will investigate how these new approaches might enable intervention to improve these determinants.
