We invite you to Low Carb Denver 2020. This is now our fifth year and growth continues! We are adding many new speakers along with some of the regulars, bringing you fresh and interesting topics, poster presentations, Q&A sessions and our famous Five Minutes of Fame session.
The conference is open to all including the general public, health, nutrition and fitness enthusiasts, the scientific community, policymakers and healthcare professionals. Our content continues to address the latest nutrition science, research, evidence, clinical and practical approaches. Another great opportunity to learn, meet distinguished guests, network, socialize and enjoy!
For healthcare professionals, application for CME credit will be filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians. If you are a non-physician healthcare professional we understand that many organizations accept AAFP prescribed credit/AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™. Please check with your organization regarding educational credit. In previous years 18 to 20 hours of CME credit have been approved with an average of 30 scientific sessions.
AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award.

More about the event
Festivities begin on Thursday evening March 12, 2020 from 6-9pm with registration and welcome reception located in the Plaza Exhibitor/Pre-Function area of the event center. Main presentations and poster presentations on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Vendors/Exhibitors from Thursday evening through Sunday.
We are holding our event at the Sheraton Denver Downtown which houses one of the larger conference spaces in the city. As our event continues to grow finding dates and space large enough to accommodate the group becomes challenging. Last year’s event was held at the Gaylord Rockies adjacent to the airport. It was a wonderful resort, but many attendees requested a downtown venue. The Sheraton is undergoing a huge interior renovation and update which should be ready in time for our event. The hotel along with the downtown location will accommodate our group nicely. Coffee, tea and water will be provided during the conference plus vendor food samples along with the many food options around the downtown area. Locals and out-of-town guests will definitely enjoy the experience.
The Whole Foods at Union Station plus many dining options can be found nearby in the updated Union Station and Waterfront sections of town. There are many other downtown dining choices within walking distance from the hotel or via the the 16th Street Free Mall Ride shuttle.
