Behind news releases on how berries improve heart health, memory and skin health is the work of research scientists. The Berry Health Benefits Symposium is an international conference dedicated to showcasing the latest scientific research by these men and women into berries and health.

The symposium, which has been held biennially since 2005, features cutting edge findings in many areas including cognition, berry phytochemicals and metabolites on cardiovascular function & cardio-metabolic health, gut health & gut microflora, food technology & chemistry and berry special topics.

Put on under the auspices of the National Berry Crops Initiative, the Berry Health Benefit Symposium also offers a 1/2 day chartered bus tour to discover Florida berry farms, the University of Florida Gulf Coast Research and Education Center Balm Campus and finishes with a Cowboy BBQ at the Southern Grace Ranch.

COVID-19 Considerations

We are moving forward with the planning of an in-person event for the 2022 Berry Health Benefits Symposium. However, we are closely monitoring the current federal and state recommendations. We will not be confirming registrations or processing payments for the symposium until November 15th, 2021. On that date we will evaluate the current health landscape and if necessary, we will pivot to a one-day online program during the scheduled symposium dates (February 1 – 3 , 2022) and will postpone the in-person conference to take place by March of 2023.

We at the Berry Health Benefits Symposium are committed to keeping attendees safe during this conference and we will work to keep you updated on local, state and national guidance on testing requirements, travel advisories and any other information related to the COVID-19 outbreak in the state of Florida and specifically in the city of Tampa. We will be sending newsletters regularly to keep you advised of conditions and regulations that might impact your attendance at the symposium and keep you informed on this evolving situation.
