ABOUT THE WEB FORUM SERIES
A high sodium diet raises blood pressure, and high blood pressure is a major cause of heart disease and stroke. By reducing sodium, the food industry can have influence over the health of Americans.
To advance sodium reduction efforts and disseminate promising practices, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) have launched a Web Forum series, “Connecting Public Health and Food Sector Collaborators,” hosted by Dialogue4Health. This series features representatives from the food sector who will share best practices, success stories and subject matter expertise for public health audiences working with the food industry to reduce sodium. Web Forums also include presentations from public health practitioners who will share lessons learned and real-life examples from their work with food industry partners to create change in a variety of food service settings.
This series is a continuation of the former Web Forum series: “Connecting Public Health and Food Service Providers” and “Connecting Public Health and the Food Industry.” For more information about NNPHI’s resources for sodium reduction, visit here.
