Welcome to the NANN 2022 Research Summit Submission Site

The 2022 NANN Research Summit is scheduled for April 12-13, 2022. NANN, with the support of Mead Johnson Nutrition, have made the decision to hold the summit as a COMPLETELY VIRTUAL event.

Please join us by submitting a Research Project or Evidence-Based Practice Project that you have implemented or are planning to implement and complete by the time of submission.

Selected individuals attend the fully supported Summit to present their research or practice change outcomes and discuss the process and results with other researchers from around the country and the world!

All submissions will undergo a blind review process (i.e., the reviewers are unaware of the applicant's identity) for quality, relevance and merit by the NANN Research Committee Advisory Panel. All submitters will be notified in February 2022 regarding the status of their submission. Approximately 20 people will be selected to participate in this program. Individuals who have not presented at the past two Research Summits will be given priority.

Selected participants will receive support for their summit attendance as follows:
  • "Conference in a Box" Provided by Mead Johnson Nutrition.
  • Each participant will be allowed 20 minutes for a presentation (15 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion). Additional information regarding the program will be sent in conjunction with acceptance letters.
  • Three participants will be selected to present at the 2022 NANN Annual Conference as an "Encore" Summit Presentation.

This program is made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Mead Johnson Nutrition.
