The Central Coast Nutrition Conference on March 1, 2014 was a successful 1-day conference featuring Eric Westman, MD, Jay Wortman, MD, Steve Phinney, MD. PhD, Jeff Volek, PhD, RD, and Lynne Daniel Ivey. Originally targeted to health professionals in the San Luis Obispo, CA area, the event was attended by about 100 people from doctors and practitioners to experienced and novice low carb dieters.
The organizers did a great job of bringing together some of the best known advocates of the low carb lifestyle and I hope they continue to grow the conference in the future.
