CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
2005 Call for Abstracts INSTRUCTIONS You are invited to submit an abstract for review and possible presentation at the American Dietetic Association (ADA) Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) in St Louis, Missouri on October 22-25, 2005. DEADLINE Only abstracts RECEIVED on or before noon (central) on Wednesday, March 2, 2005 and that follow all submission and format guidelines described below will be reviewed. Read this information carefully and go to www. eatright.org/fnce to obtain a submission form. WHAT IS AN ABSTRACT? An abstract is a brief, written summary (approximately 250 words) of the specific ideas or concepts to be presented, and a statement of their relevance to practice or research. The following two types of abstracts are presented: ●
Research abstracts include a brief description of the author’s original research methodology, including design, subject characteristics and procedures, major findings, and conclusions or implications for dietetics practice. Project or program report abstracts contain information about the need or purpose for such a program, project, or tool development; the theory or previous research upon which it is based, or setting for its use, if appropriate; the unique characteristics of the project, program, or tool; the characteristics of subjects or target audience involved; and the type of evaluation or proposed use for the tool or instrument development.
ABSTRACT CATEGORIES Qualifying abstract submissions in all Learning Need Codes are encouraged and will be peer reviewed for poster presentation at the 2005 FNCE. Poster Presentations offer content using charts, graphs, illustrations, and/or photographs. Posters allow for informal, one-on-one or small group discussions with the presenter about the issue, problem, project, or research addressed in the poster. The poster area will consist of one 4-ft high ⫻ 8-ft wide cork-surface bulletin board on which to mount presentation information, and one 2-ft ⫻ 6-ft material table, provided by the Association. ADA’s Research Committee and the FNCE Program Planning Advisory Committee have chosen four selected categories for oral Original Contribution presentations at FNCE 2005. The concept of preselecting topics for the Original Contributions provides more cohesive oral ses-

sions and enhanced interest from members due to directed topic content. Original Contribution sessions will include up to six 10-minute oral presentations during a 90-minute session. Four topics were selected based on their compatibility with ADA’s Strategic Plan and topics of interest in the ADA House of Delegates dialogue sessions. The 2005 topics for Original Contribution consideration include: (1) Effective Weight Management Interventions: ADA seeks data and results from successful preventive and treatment interventions focusing on weight management within all age categories. (2) Effective Nutrition and Lifestyle Changes: ADA seeks data and results from education and behavior change strategies for any disease management or health state. (This category excludes weight management.) This research may include identification of the characteristics of effective interventions, communication strategies, or tailoring disease management programs to different individuals, cultures, and age categories. (3) Food Supply: ADA seeks data and results focusing on access to the food supply; educational programs focusing on safety of the food supply (including biotechnology and bioterrorism); programs focused on functional foods; and food production, processing, and preparation. (4) Customer Satisfaction Across Settings: ADA seeks data and results showing validation of tools or questionnaires used to measure all aspects of customer satisfaction and service quality. These may include elements of service delivery, written materials, food product attributes, cost attributes, environmental factors, and interpersonal aspects. All accepted Poster presenters and Original Contributions presenters are: ● ● ●
Required to attend FNCE and be present throughout the assigned session. Responsible for expenses incurred for their presentation, such as production of handouts and shipping. Responsible for paying the appropriate meeting registration fee for the day they are scheduled to present, plus all personal expenses (eg, travel, hotel). Required to complete and sign a disclosure statement and the ADA Commercialism Policy statement prior to abstract acceptance.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS and faculty. The intent of FNCE programs is to provide quality sessions focused on educational content, which is free from commercial influence or bias. ADA prohibits presentations that constitute promotion and/or advertising. This specifically includes pervasive or inappropriate use of logos. Presentations that are sole descriptions of a program, publication, or product will not be accepted nor tolerated by the participants. To this end, program planners, session participants, and sponsors are prohibited from engaging in scripting, targeting points for specific emphasis, or other actions designed to influence the overall content of the program. Statements made should not be viewed as, or considered representative of, any formal position taken on any product, subject, or issue by ADA. It is the responsibility of the program planner to ensure compliance from all speakers. REVIEW PROCESS All “blind” abstracts (see Rules for Submission) are peerreviewed by a panel of three dietetics professionals with specific experience in various practice areas. Reviewers may not score/evaluate any abstract with which they have affiliation, prior knowledge, or personal commitment. Research Abstracts are reviewed on the basis of the following: research outcome (focus, clarity, clear statement of purpose of research), methods (adequacy of research design and analysis to meet objectives), results (summary of data, results, and evidence is included and is consistent with research objectives), and conclusions (scientifically sound, valid interpretation of the results). Program/Project Report Abstracts are reviewed on the basis of the following: relevance (clear purpose stated, appropriateness, timeliness, audience intrigue), priority (recognized precedent; cutting-edge concern), originality (uniqueness of topic or format), and synthesis (evaluation of report results, findings, or applications). ADA will summarize peer review results and make all final abstract selection decisions. If you have any questions or require additional information, contact Eileen Joschko, Professional Development Team, at 312/8994895. Only presenting authors receive correspondence. This correspondence includes a receipt of abstract and final status notification. It is the presenting author’s responsibility to notify all coauthors of the abstract status. Critical dates are: April 8, 2005: Receipt of abstract submissions emailed; May 27, 2005: Notification of the abstract status sent. No telephone calls regarding abstract status will be accepted, or notification given, before the aforementioned date. (Please allow 5 business days for mailing.) RULES FOR SUBMISSION Read all of the following information before completing the Abstract Form: 1. Complete and return the submission in the following sequence: (a) One (1) diskette for each abstract submission. (Word document ’97 or later, PC compatible 3.5” diskette—no exceptions.)

TITLE: IRON DEFICIENCY ANEMIA: FIELD ASSESSMENT OF THE WORLD’S MOST COMMON NUTRITIONAL DISORDER
AUTHOR(s): J.L. Weinstein, MS, MBA, RD; M.M. DeAngelo, RD; M. Copeland, RD; P.J. Petnicki, MS, RD, FADA; United States Air Force, David Grant Medical Center, Nutritional Medicine, Travis AFB, CA.
To understand the importance of clinical, physical, and dietary assessment as diagnostic techniques used to identify iron
deficiency in a humanitarian environment.
Iron deficiency (ID) is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide. The World Health Organization has estimated that nearly 5 billion people suffer from ID. In some regions, deployed military personnel interact with an indigenous population with a prevalence of ID as high as 70%. Recent military deployments to ID “high-risk” locations include Bosnia, Kosovo,
Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Marshall Islands, South Korea, and Honduras. Field assessment and treatment of ID is often a primary health objective for which defined diagnostic criteria are essential. Physical assessment is used to identify mid/late stages of ID but is a non-specific technique requiring significant training. Physical symptoms of ID include pale conjunctiva,
brittle nails, lethargy, and malaise. During recent humanitarian deployments, clinical assessment has been the primary

method used for diagnosis of anemia and has proven simple and cost-effective. Hemoglobin analysis via hematofluorometry or filter paper serum spot are commonly used clinical field assays; however, even clinical tests are not specific for early stages of ID. Dietary assessment of the amount and type of iron consumed in conjunction with physical and clinical assessment can help to improve early detection of ID. Although complex diet analysis in the field environment is difficult, simple dietary assessment, to include iron rich foods (ie, meats, fortified grains, legumes), iron enhancing (ie, meats), and inhibiting agents (ie, phytates, polyphenols) may help to recognize likely ID. In order to employ effective treatment programs, nutrition experts working with “high-risk” ID populations must be able to effectively use dietary, clinical and functional assessment.
