The American Heart Association (AHA) Industry Nutrition Advisory Panel (INAP) is a strategic relationship between the AHA Nutrition Committee and food industry leaders. INAP provides a platform for sharing information and planning cooperative programs in the areas of diet and nutrition and cardiovascular disease.
The AHA Industry Nutrition Advisory Panel (INAP) comprises current Nutrition Committee and food industry members. A food industry member can belong to any for-profit or not-for-profit corporation, trade organization or agency whose objectives are in alignment with the AHA and INAP mission. Industry members are charged a one-year fee of $10,000 and must be current with payments to be an active member. INAP is co-chaired by a chairperson elected from the INAP members and the current chairperson of the Nutrition Committee serving two-year staggered terms. The Nutrition Committee will have a liaison appointed to work with INAP for a two-year term.
The primary benefit of INAP is bringing together industry and science representatives to exchange dialogues on areas of mutual interest pertaining to nutrition. Benefits of this dialogue include:
- Networking and relationship building with industry leaders
- Education on relevant topics from the nutrition, physical activity, metabolism and obesity areas
- Members get the latest updates on all AHA initiatives and are given the opportunity to provide input to the AHA regarding statements and positions on these topics
- Direct access to AHA staff involved in nutrition-related issues
- An organized relationship with the Nutrition Committee that allows for open communication on topics of interest
Members also receive one complimentary registration to attend the AHA’s spring science conference and council dinner coordinated by the Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism Council (NPAM) and the Council on Epidemiology (EPI).
In addition, our newest benefit gives each member one complimentary AHA Premium Professional Membership. Among the many benefits this membership includes is the option to affiliate with up to two of our 16 Scientific Councils and grants you access to seven of our eleven Scientific Journals.
INAP meetings are held twice a year face to: in March prior to the joint AHA NPAM/EPI conference and in November prior to the AHA Scientific Sessions to coincide with the Nutrition Committee meeting. There is also a conference call held In July
