What is INAP?
The American Heart Association’s Industry Nutrition Advisory Panel (INAP) is a unique, strategic relationship between the American Heart Association’s Nutrition Committee and food industry leaders. In existence since 1995, INAP provides a platform for open dialogue, sharing of information and planning cooperative programs in areas of mutual interest such as diet and nutrition and cardiovascular disease. Through INAP, industry members are kept abreast of emerging nutrition science and American Heart Association nutrition policies and programs while providing the American Heart Association information on the strategic needs, structure and operations of the food industry.
Simply put – INAP is a meaningful and purposeful relationship that connects the leaders in today’s food industry with the American Heart Association.
