The International Conferences on Nutrition and Fitness are dedicated to the concept of "Positive Health" as enunciated by Hippocrates:

'Positive health requires a knowledge of man's primary constitution (which today we call genetics) and of the powers of various foods, both those natural to them and those resulting from human skill (today's processed food). But eating alone is not enough for health. There must also be exercise, of which the effects must likewise be known. The combination of these two things makes regimen, when proper attention is given to the season of the year, the changes of the winds, the age of the individual and the situation of his home. If there is any deficiency in food or exercise the body will fall sick.' (5th Century BC)

Conference Chair: Artemis P. Simopoulos, M.D. (USA)
