AbstractThe International Movement and Nutrition Society (IMNS) was founded in Regensburg, Germany in May 2014. The society is a nonprofit association of scientists, clinicians, healthcare professionals and laypersons interested in the importance of lifestyle factors, such as physical activity and nutrition, in health and disease. The mission and major goals of the IMNS include promoting public awareness and debate, disseminating knowledge, supporting the exchange of information between scholars and the public, providing educational programs, initiating research projects and developing policies.
