On May 7th-9th, 2019, some of the world’s most renowned berry researchers gathered in Portland, Oregon, USA and presented research that attracted media and consumer attention to berries as a superfruit. To review the scientific presentations, please download the Pre-Proceedings PDF here.
Behind news releases on how berries improve the odds in the battle against chronic disease and aging 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 breast and colon cancer, leukemia, diabetes, gut health, metabolism, brain aging, heart health and more.
Put on under the auspices of the National Berry Crops Initiative, the Berry Health Benefit Symposium offers 1 1/2 days of dynamic research presentations and a special 1/2 day event “The Berry Sessions” for non-scientists, and will include a tour of a nearby berry farm.
