Getting the Knack of NACS was a two-day State-of-the-Art (SOTA) meeting held Feb 22–23, 2012, and attended by 103 participants from 48 organizations. It provided an overview of current thinking and predominant issues surrounding the design, implementation, and evaluation of programming using the Nutrition Assessment, Counseling, and Support (NACS) approach. The participants represented a range of knowledge and experience about NACS, and the agenda was designed to include everyone by starting with the background, history, and science of NACS and leading to discussion about implementation and integration.
