Annotation: This conference proceedings contains a complete summary of presentations, abstracts of poster sessions, and handouts from the 1990 Region IV public health nutrition workshop sponsored by the University of Tennessee. The workshop focused on expanding public health nutrition services based on sound program planning principles. Nationally recognized speakers described community assessment, planning, implementation, evaluation and budgeting. Providers of model programs in each of the eight southeastern states described how they successfully applied these principles to expand and diversify services. Sessions highlighted short- and long-range interventions in the community-at-large and for special populations, including those with AIDS, the homeless, special needs children, and high-risk infants.
