The Lodge at Torrey Pines, La Jolla, CA
September 6-8, 2022
NIA West Spring Conference 2022
NIA-West’s annual conference has come to a close with happy attendees and exciting plans for the Spring conference. Attendees got a break from the scalding weather inland and enjoyed the Lodge at Torrey Pines with it’s beautiful oceanside location, while catching up with colleagues, networking with new acquaintances and listening to education sessions that enlighted, inspired, and moved us all forward.
Sessions ranged from supply chain to packaging to regulatory affairs and a fun approach to looking back at a career that saw the development of much of the policy that guides us today. Speakers included a stellar lineup who shared their experience and knowledge with all of us. A big thank you to Jim Emme of NOW Foods, Zhaoping Li, MD, Ph.D. from UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine, Hilary Bricken of Harris Bricken, Haeri Roh-Schmidt Ph.D. of Herbalife, Dan Fabricant Ph.D. of NPA, Rosalynd Resendiz of TricorBraun, John Venardos and Peg Carew Toledo of Arnold Porter.
Some of the best rated events happened on the The Arroyo Terrace at the Lodge, a beautiful location.
Golf was front and center and kicked off the opening day on the South course at Torrey Pines an location that hosts the PGA Tour. Our members had the opportunity to play where the pros play with the stunning La Jolla coastline as a backdrop.
