Morning Journal Club – Study Group

KAND Journal Club has been in existence for over 40 years, meeting in members’ homes once a month for 2 hours each from October to May, except December.  In May, we decide on topics for the next year and apply for prior approval over the summer.  Participants search for articles on the topic and everyone adds to the discussion.  We use JADA articles, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, Nutrition Newsletters (e.g. Tufts), NY Times Science Section and ADA information, plus the internet.

Topics have included Metabolic Syndrome, Diabetes—all aspects, Food Safety, Cancer Prevention, Nutrition Guidelines, Eating Disorders, Childhood Obesity, etc.
