Dozens of French and Québec researchers connected to the Institut de Nutrition Aquitaine Québec (INAQ) will meet in Quebec City on September 29 and 30 to share their knowledge of public health issues related to nutrition, such as obesity and aging. This is the third scientific meeting under the auspices of INAQ, a project that was created through collaboration between France and Québec.
