Food Science and Human Nutrition Lillian Fountain Smith Nutrition Conference
Our next conference will be held Spring 2024. Please check back for forthcoming information.
39th Lillian Fountain Smith Nutrition Conference
Colorado State University Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition
The Lillian Fountain Smith Conference honors Mrs. Smith, a 1918 graduate in home economics at Colorado State University (then Colorado A&M). Recognizing the importance of nutrition in her own life and the lives of her family members, Mrs. Smith chose to assist the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Colorado State University in improving and extending its nutrition outreach activities.
The Lillian Fountain Smith Conference was first made possible with charitable gifts from the Lillian Fountain Smith Trust, established by Mr. and Mrs. J. Fish Smith. The conference – including the affordable registration costs – is now sustained by the Lillian Fountain Smith Conference Endowment, established with a bequest from Mrs. Smith’s estate. People have attended this conference from across the United States during the past three decades. It is an honor to continue this legacy.
