  • To create and disseminate a comprehensive quarterly publication that provides nutrition information to members, allied health professionals and primary care providers in the field of Infectious Diseases management through a variety of communication channels.
  • To inform members of current research in infectious diseases nutrition and to provide support for their participation in research projects through networking.
