Letter from the Chairman

34th Annual Scientific Conference of the Nutrition Society of Malaysia 2019

Greetings from Nutrition Society of Malaysia (NSM).

Continuing with its tradition of organising an annual scientific conference, NSM will be organising the 34th scientific conference from 3-4 July 2019, in Kuala Lumpur.

We have selected the theme of the Conference to be Healthy Nutrition: Key to Disease Prevention. The 34th Annual Scientific Conference of the NSM aims to provide a platform for all stakeholders to share research and intervention activities that contribute towards the implementation of National Plan of Action for Nutrition of Malaysia (NPANM) III (2016-2025) and address the double burden of malnutrition. It is our belief that disease prevention through healthy nutrition is the way forward for the alleviation of the disease burden in the country and to ensure a healthy generation of Malaysians in the future.

The structure for the main conference on 3-4 July 2019, as given in the preliminary announcement attached, will feature plenary lectures, as well as simultaneous symposia sessions with the main topics in food and nutrition of importance and relevance to the country. In addition, there will be lunch symposia sessions.

We are extending a very special invitation to you to participate actively in the upcoming Conference. We would like to invite you to sponsor the conference, advertise in the souvenir programme and display your products and services to participants. We invite your staff to join others in learning of the developments in nutrition science within the country, as well as internationally.

I would also like to particularly draw your attention on being a major sponsor where you may also invite speaker(s) of your choice to speak in the lunch symposia session, in addition to the usual acknowledgements.

Join us in exploring ways to work together in promoting better nutrition for healthier Malaysians. As the objective of the Conference is in line with the aspirations of your esteemed company, I am sure you would want to be involved in this exciting event where close to 400 nutritionists, food scientists and other allied professions gather for this largest nutrition meeting in the country.

Kindly confirm your participation using the enclosed sponsorship booking form. Please note that the various offers for sponsorship are on a first-come-first-served basis.
